Fall means Farmalls, friends in Fredericktown

The time is finally arrived. For cooler weather and JP’s 17th Midwest Cub-Arama tractor show. Festivities are scheduled to kick off Thursday morning in Jaycee/Priest Park in downtown Fredericktown.

(However as you drive around town today, you may notice many trailers full of RED TRACTORS already proudly entering our town). As of today there are scheduled to be International Harvester items rolling into town from over 15+ States including Mississippi, Minnesota, Ohio, Louisiana, and Texas. Many folks have taken part in this show every year.

You may still bring your tractors to the show. You will need to register to show it or to bring your extra IH items into the swap meet, however, there is NO cost for spectators. You may obtain a registration form at the show, just visit the Main pavilion in Jaycee Park.

Set up will begin on Thursday, September 27 and the show opens on Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29 opening at 8 am and running until around 5 pm both days. There is NO ADMISSION FEE TO COME LOOK AROUND AND HAVE A GOOD TIME. Come and enjoy a wonderful tradition of Farmall and Friends in Fredericktown as we proudly celebrate our 17th show.

The show will again feature all the different model Cub and Cub Cadet tractors and implements produced as well as all the other IH items manufactured over the years as we open the show to all IH items. In addition to the TRACTOR DISPLAYS there will be many other great events including:

VENDERS and SWAP MEET–There will be venders selling New and Used IH parts and merchandise.

FIELD DEMONSTRATIONS–Watch folks demonstrate how their equipment works in the field or get a little dirt on your own.

HOW TO CLINICS–Observe or take part in seminar style rebuilds. You can also participate in a very informative interaction of the history of all the IH equipment on site.

PARADE– It starts in the Park on North Main and will progress up to the Court Square. Then make a right and travel the down West Main for one block to make a right on Buford. The IH Parade will travel along the soccer fields and make a right on Murta.

Then we will make a final right back on North Main. Feel free to sit along the route for an excellent view of the Parade Of Power.

CONCESSIONS–Taste a huge selection of lunch and snack items from local organizations.


CITY WIDE YARD SALE – back by popular demand. Call or text your info to 573-561-4524 to be put on the list, or Thursday through Saturday pick up a free yard sale list at the Main Registration Pavilion in the park.

ADULT GAMES–The slow tractor race is always as fun to do as to watch.

DOOR PRIZES– Don’t forget to stop by the registration table and sign up for one of the many door prizes to be given away on both Friday and Saturday.


DINNER and TRIVIA – This year’s banquet dinner will feature fresh made jambalaya, sides and dessert followed by a fun game of IH trivia.

Even if you do not have an IH tractor or truck there is plenty to do and see. There is no cost for spectators, so come down to Azalea/Priest parks and enjoy the day or full weekend of International Harvester related family fun.
