Antique tractor buffs will have a heyday at this year’s 149th Annual Whiteside County Fair, which runs August 13-17.
Display your Antique Tractor at this year’s Whiteside County Fair. Each participant will receive a 149th Whiteside County Fair plaque to display on their antique tractor. The exhibitor’s will fire up their engines for the parade about one hour before the start of that evening’s truck and tractor pulls at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 16th. Anyone displaying their Antique Farm Tractor at the 2019 Whiteside County Fair will be required to purchase a Season Membership Pass which will automatically enter them into the exhibition.
Due to space constraints, the display will be limited to “restored or good original” tractors. The fair also welcomes for display, hit and miss engines that are in working order. No garden tractors or implements are allowed unless the implements are mounted to the tractor. Pre-registration is recommended and can be done by contacting Ron Shank at 772-7157.
