River Valley Antique Association will be hosting their 35th Annual Old Fashioned Tractor Show & Swap Meet on August 25 & 26, 2018 at Butler Haynes Park located at 9424 S. Mapleton Road, Mapleton, IL 61547.
Members of the IVBA are invited to come to the show and set up a blacksmith tent if possible. This show attracts a lot of people from the area and it would be great to showcase blacksmithing to those unfamiliar with this trade.
The show this year will be featuring the tractor brand John Deere, events include an Antique Tractor parade, Antique Tractor pull and a peddle tractor pull for the kids and craft show.
If anyone from the IVBA would be able to attend and set up a blacksmith tent or have any questions please call Michelle May at (309) 696-2171. The event is free to vendors and patrons.
