The annual Tractorfest at Newby Hall is set to return after the enforced Covid break of 2 years.

This year’s show has been extended to 3 days to allow exhibitors and visitors to enjoy the Jubilee themed event. With over 1500 exhibitors and a host of entertainment, crafts, food & drink Tractorfest is a great day out for anyone, of any age interested in farm or industrial machinery. Admission includes access to Newby’s award-winning gardens, adventure playground, dolls house and teddy bear exhibitions.

Tractor Fest is the UK’s largest vintage tractor and engine show. Each year the show attracts over 1600 exhibits as well as in excess of 12,000 visitors. Held on the grounds of Newby Hall, visitors to the show also get access to the award-winning gardens and other attractions at this country estate.

Tractor Fest is organised by the Yorkshire Vintage Association, in conjunction with Newby Hall & Gardens. This unique partnership allows us to put on an event that occupies approximately 120 acres and features over 1000 tractors on display. The first event at Newby Hall was held in 2007 when we had some 360 exhibits entered. It has grown year on year since then and now attracts over 1600 exhibits from all corners of the United Kingdom and further afield.
