This show is evolving into a really nice large show, with all brands of tractors, very nice & friendly.

I'm would guess about 100 people were set up and sold parts & tractors there last May, many people had large 'car hauler' trailers just heaping full of tractors & parts, and then 3-400 buyers or more (I was too busy to watch). I felt the prices were very fair and the sellers seemed very happy with their traffic & results.  All brands were there about equally, lots of information exchanged.  Not many show tractors but lots of tractors and parts for sale, and in decent condition to restore, not much rusty-junk.  The show size/participants greatly increases every time, probably about 50% - being held in May and in September there.

I love their timing plan...May and September are great for something like this, as it falls outside the primary show season, and before/after summer business sets in, and before leaf/snow duty.  I would love to drive down for this.

I went to the swap meet earlier this year it was a good turn out but the show bleeds red so if you love wheel horses it's the show for you Very little of anything else was there for sale
