For the tenth year we are managing the marketing communications for Tractor Fest, which has grown to become the largest tractor festival in the UK and takes place this weekend (10 and 11 June).

With thousands of enthusiasts and families expected, our client Newby Hall and Gardens is hosting the show in its magnificent parkland setting. Tractor Fest is organised by the Yorkshire Vintage Association (YVA).

Our role is to build awareness of the show and we’re expecting a good turnout of media over the weekend, with BBC Radio York interviewing the team and Your Harrogate and York Mix broadcasting live from Tractor Fest.

Major themes and displays this year include 100 years of the John Deere model D tractor and 100 years of the MG car. Exhibitors and visitors will also be treated to a Spitfire flypast on Sunday by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, weather permitting.

YVA chairman Kevin Watson said: “We are really excited for this year’s Tractor Fest and the number of exhibitors who are supporting us again. Visitors will be entertained with all manner of displays, from vintage tractors, engines, cars and working machinery to more modern marques as we showcase the history of the John Deere D and MG car over the last 100 years.”

A host of entertainment, crafts, food and drink make Tractor Fest a great family day out. Admission includes access to Newby’s award-winning gardens, adventure playground, dolls house and teddy bear exhibitions.

Other fun activities for families over the weekend include mini tractor driving, face painting, colouring and interactive exhibits. There are also trade stands, crafts and a choice of street food.

Tractor Fest is sponsored by Europe’s leading agricultural and machinery auctioneer Cheffins, The National Vintage Tractor & Engine Club (NVTEC) and Econ Engineering. The show is also supported by Ripon Farm Services.
