Tractor Fest to return to Newby Hall for 18th year

The UK’s largest tractor festival celebrates its 18th anniversary this year at Newby Hall.

Taking place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June, Tractor Fest will showcase more than 1,000 vintage and modern tractors, 600 stationary engines, commercial vehicles, cars, trucks and motorcycles.

Among this year’s highlights will be a display celebrating orange tractor marques including the original orange tractor made by US machinery manufacturer Allis Chalmers, as well as harvesting and threshing machinery and an exhibition of vintage and modern European cars.

Allis Chalmers tractors were the first to be produced in a bright, easily recognised colour.

Tractor Fest has grown over 18 years to become the UK’s largest tractor show.

Organised by the Yorkshire Vintage Association (YVA), the event is held over two days and is established as a firm favourite with enthusiasts and families.

Kevin Watson, chair of the YVA, said:

“We are gearing up for another fantastic Tractor Fest this year. Tractor Fest is the highlight of our members’ year and exhibitor entries are coming in thick and fast.

"We have held our ticket prices this year and we can promise enthusiasts and families alike a great weekend, with Newby Hall and its award-winning gardens providing a stunning backdrop for our popular show.”

A host of entertainment, crafts, food and drink will be on offer at the show and admission includes access to Newby’s gardens, adventure playground, dolls house and teddy bear exhibitions.

Tractor Fest is sponsored by Europe’s leading agricultural and machinery auctioneer Cheffins and Econ Engineering. The show is also supported by Ripon Farm Services.

Cheffins chairman Bill King said:

“We are very proud of our association with Tractor Fest and the way it has grown year on year.

"We look forward to welcoming enthusiasts and visitors to what will be another great weekend at Newby.”
