The UK’s largest tractor festival returns to Newby Hall and Gardens near Ripon this June.



Visit Tractorfest and see more than 1,000 vintage and modern tractors and 600 stationary engines, commercial vehicles, cars, trucks and motorcycles.


Tractor Fest has grown over 18 years to become the UK’s largest tractor show. Organised by the Yorkshire Vintage Association (YVA), the event is held over two days and is established as a firm favourite with enthusiasts and families.


Among this year’s highlights will be a display celebrating orange tractor marques including the original orange tractor made by US machinery manufacturer Allis Chalmers, as well as harvesting and threshing machinery and an exhibition of vintage and modern European cars. Allis Chalmers tractors were the first to be produced in a bright, easily recognised colour. Produced in Persian Orange (a colour inspired by the Californian poppy), the marketing ploy was soon copied by competitors with International Harvester produced in red from 1936, and Case using Flambeau Red. After Henry Ford cancelled production of the Fordson tractor in the United States in 1928, the Allis Chalmers tractor was widely adopted by many farmers as a cost-effective alternative. Allis-Chalmers also collaborated with Firestone on the first pneumatic rubber tyres for tractors in 1932 and its row-crop tractors and harvester combine harvester were market leaders.


Ticket prices: Adult: £18.00, Child: £15.00, Family (2+2): £56, under 4s: free.



Admission includes access to Newby’s award-winning gardens, adventure playground, dollhouse and teddy bear exhibitions.



A great day out for enthusiasts and families alike!
