FORD/FORDSON  FEATURED  SHOWS/EVENTS

2015 Events

The annual Ford-Fortson show will be held at the Pageant of Steam show in Canandaigua New York. This is the first time the show has been held this Far East and we look forward to seeing the many local tractors and hope the rest of you will come see a different part of the country. The show is from the 5th to the 8th of August and is located just off route5&20 just east of city of Canandaigua in western New York. There is primitive camping on the grounds with a limited number of sites with power, but not enough to run air conditioners. There are a number of motels nearby many within 3-10 miles of the show. The sponsors are planning a Ford only tractor pull for those of you who are interested. For those of you making a vacation out of the trip there is a lot to do in the region. The area is at the north end of the Finger Lakes with many resort areas. The Finger Lakes are famous for the many wineries located on the shores and there are many possibilities to sample the products and tour the vineyards. The Empire Field Days are held earlier in the week about a half hour away. This is the largest new farm equipment show in the east and they have field demonstrations also.
