Entertainment for the Whole Family at the 23rd Annual Antique Equipment Show

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

The International Agri-Center will host the 23rd annual California Antique Farm Equipment Show, April 17-19, 2015 in Tulare, California.  The event will showcase antique equipment with a focus on 'Honoring our Heritage'. Hundreds of antique trucks, tractors and equipment will be on display, along with entertainment, demonstrations and fun for the whole family. 

Children can play in the kids' area and shoppers won't want to miss "Antiques & Boutiques", for clothing, home goods, jewelry and more! 

Everyone will enjoy watching the antique equipment parade on Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 am. Be sure to get a seat and watch as hundreds of antique trucks and tractors drive up 'U' Street for a show you won't soon forget!

For serious antique equipment enthusiasts, hundreds of antique trucks, tractors, engines and farm equipment will be on display during the three-day show. See antique earth movers in action as they dig in the tractor exposition area, and visit the over 90 swap meet booths for iron works, antiques, and wood crafts. 

"An opportunity to look at where agriculture has been is a steady reminder of where we are going," said Jerry Sinift, CEO of the International Agri-Center. "Technology is a huge part of farming, but remembering and honoring our heritage is something worth celebrating every April. The California Antique Farm Equipment Show offers family fun for all ages!"

On Sunday, April 19, the Dairy Dash 5K fun run/walk will return for the second year during the show, allowing runners and walkers to tour beautiful orchards, farmland, and the Elk Bayou just outside the grounds. A free kids' half-mile sprint will occur at 8:00 am, with the 5K race starting at 8:30 am on Sunday. Participants can sign up on the
