Call for Antique Tractors

Organizers need antique tractors to feature at 2010 Got to Be NC Festival.

Published on: Mar 3, 2010
Farmers love their tractors – and sometimes they especially love their antique tractors. Those who have antique tractors and farm equipment are being invited to put them on display at the 2010 Got to Be NC Festival, May 21-23 at the N.C. State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, N.C.

Restorers, collectors and antique tractor clubs can register to show their antique farm equipment at no charge at www.ncagfest.com. Registration is required and NCDA&CS urges early registration.

In 2009 there was a carnival, live music, food and wine expo, tractor pulls, draft horse pulls, classic cars, Harley Davidson motorcycles, lawnmower racing and a barbecue cookoff at the festival. There were also over 500 antique tractors and 1,000 other pieces of farm equipment on display at the festival.

Festival hours are 9 a.m. to midnight May 21 and 22, and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. May 23. Admission and parking for the festival are free. There is a fee for grandstand events.
