The Museum of Ventura County Agriculture Museum will host its Second Annual Vintage Tractor Fair on Monday, September 1st, 2014, following the Santa Paula Labor Day Parade.
More than two dozen classic farm tractors from decades past will be displayed by their proud owners on Railroad Avenue adjacent to the Museum from 10:30am to 1:30p.m. Live music, food trucks, and tractor-themed kids’ activities will add to the fun. Admission to the 2nd Annual Vintage Tractor Fair and to the Agriculture Museum is free. A Kids’ Outdoor Fun Zone, which is $5 per person, will also be featured. The Labor Day Vintage Tractor Fair is sponsored by the Limoneira Co.

Visitors can view rare tractors and talk to the tractors’ owners, who are all members of the Topa Topa Flywheelers club, as well as view a working vintage engine demonstration. Delicious food options will be available for sale from World Famous Franks, selling gourmet hot dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches, and Kona Ice, selling refreshing snow cones. Beer and wine will be sold in the beer garden, with the help of Garman’s Pub of Santa Paula.

With the purchase of a $5 wrist band, visitors can enter the Kids’ Fun Zone, in a secured area adjacent to the tractors. Families can stay in or return to the Kids’ Fun Zone as they wish, with the wrist band. Inside, children can compete in or watch pedal tractor races, or bounce in a supervised, super-sized Jolly Jump. They can also ask for a balloon character from our balloon artist Cookie the Clown. There will also be a chance for kids and adults to get close and personal with several farm animals from chickens to alpacas in petting zoo area by Aloha Animal Experience.

Inside the Museum, visitors can view new exhibits about agriculture and vintage equipment in the air-conditioned historic building. Kids can climb on a real Oliver tractor and visit the Museum’s transparent, real beehive. Also, visit the Museum’s General Store and shop our local vendors for special items.

Santa Paula’s favorite rock and roll band, Cruise Knights, will play classic tunes on stage during the Labor Day Vintage Tractor Fair. Don’t miss the pie eating contest that will be held at 12:00pm, sponsored by Marie Callender’s. For more information, call (805) 525-3100.
