Calvert City’s Tractor and Antique Engine Show at the Old Park on July 31 and August 1, drew perhaps what was the event’s largest crowd ever. Both days the event enjoyed cooler temperatures and dry days.
While most of the tractors and machines were displayed by local collectors and hobbyist there were also equipment on display that was transported several hours by their owners.
The tractor and machine show is free to exhibitors and vendors and no admission is charged to people who come just to see the old machines in action.
Calvert City’s Tractor and Antique Engine Show is sponsored by Calvert Area Development Association and by the City of Calvert City. it is always held on the first Saturday in August and the Friday that accompanies it. Next year the tractor and engine show will be held on August 5 and 6, 2016.
