Signature EventsTastings
This Saturday and Sunday, October 12–13, over 60 classic tractors will line up for Tractor Fest 2019 representing several manufacturers including Farmall, Ford, Case, Oliver, Moline, and John Deere! 🚜
On Sunday at noon, see tractors parade throughout the museum grounds. Clubs such as Central New York Antique Tractor Club, Tired Iron of Butternut Valley, and the Franklin Doodlebugs Homemade Antique Tractor Club will again participate in the event. See tractors at work in the fields. Take a wagon ride around the museum grounds–pulled by a tractor (1:30–4:00 p.m. each day). Watch demonstrations of a corn cutter and check out a display of large and small hit-and-miss engines.
Tractor Fest is a great weekend destination for families. On Saturday at 2:00 p.m., kids under 12 can take part in a Pedal Tractor Pull Contest provided by Tired Iron of Butternut Valley. Sign-up between 1:00–2:00 p.m. Ribbons will be awarded. Children ages 7 and younger can drive our assortment of pedal-tractors or play in our "corn box” – like a sandbox but filled with corn kernels. Natures Canvas Face Painting will be on–site from 11:00 a.m.–-2:00 p.m. Toys of Yesterday farm toys and pickups will be on display in the Main Barn, courtesy of Troy Deamer of Owego. All event activities run from 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. both days. Kids can also enjoy the Children's Barnyard and the Grow Patch play-and-learn area.

On Sunday, sit for an authentic wetplate tintype portrait––the most common photographic process used in the 19th century. Look like you just stepped out of the mid-1800s with these historical images that are etched into tin. Historic clothing is available to make your look authentic. Tintype portraits will be available for visitors throughout the day (weather dependent).

Adults (13-64): $12.00; seniors (65+): $10.50; youth (7-12): $6.00; children (6 and under): Free. Museum members are always admitted free, as are active-duty and retired career military.
Tractor Fest is sponsored in part by Chobani and Five Star Subaru.
Event Activities run from 10-4.  Museum is open until 5.
