If you own a tractor, are interested in buying one, or would like to restore your tractor, you should check out one of the many tractor shows and museums across the country. The premier tractor shows typically feature antique tractors as well as modern-day machines in order to appeal to a broad variety of audiences. Aside from tractors, you’ll find food, music, contests and much more at most tractor shows, so bring your family along with you.
Before you hit the road to check out the shows, participate in our Majic Paint Tractor Restoration Contest, which is running until November 30. Submit before and after pictures of your tractor once you’ve restored it with Majic Tractor, Truck & Implement Enamel. First place wins $2,000 and second place wins $1,000.
In late January, Zolfo Springs, Florida, serves as host to Pioneer Park Days. Here, you’ll find one of the largest and oldest antique tractor shows in the country.

Keep your tractor in optimal condition with Majic Paint’s Perfect Combination. It includes Majic Tractor, Truck & Implement Enamel, Catalyst Hardener and Majic Reducer. These will boost hardness and gloss while reducing drying time.

If you are interested in the history of tractors and would like to see some impressive exhibits, be sure to take a trip to the Larsen Tractor Test and Power Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska. There’s free admission, although a donation is encouraged. The museum is named in honor of Lester F. Larsen, the chief engineer of Nebraska’s Tractor Test Laboratory between 1946 and 1975. He was Nebraska’s first collector of tractor testing equipment, and his efforts resulted in critical developments in numerous types of agricultural technology. Visitors will learn all about how tractors are tested and how performance data is used to improve agricultural production.
