The 1919 Walla Walla Tractor Show documentary tells the story of the biggest agricultural exposition west of the Mississippi. Nearly 49,000 people attended the three-day event showcasing agricultural innovations of the time. Production of the tractor show (and associated Blue Mountain Music Festival) was an extraordinary feat, one that doubled the size of Walla Walla for a few days.

Created by Linda Herbert and Daniel Biggs and produced by Blue Mountain Land Trust, the video may be viewed on the Blue Mountain Land Trust’s website: www.bmlt.org. A companion book, The 1919 Walla Walla Tractor Show, is available through the Blue Mountain Land Trust website at www.bmlt.org/store. All proceeds go to Land Trust programs.
