Future Farm Fair Queen

We are looking for girls 5-13 years old to participate in our future Farm Fair Queen parade!

The parade will take place onWednesday, July 19at 8:45pm.

All interested girls please report to the north show tent. This is not a competition. All girls 5-13 years old are welcome!

Tractor Pull

The tractor pulls are run by the Central Jersey Tractor Pullers Association. Both large and garden tractors will compete in separate events.

Please visit the CJTPA website for detailed information about tractor pulls during the Farm Fair and at other times of the year.

Antique Machinery

Enjoy the parade of antique tractors every day at 5 P.M. on the Fairgrounds.

Take a step backward in time and visit these old tractors and a large assortment of other farm machinery. Antique cars and trucks are also on display. The antique farm equipment show has been growing each year at the Burlington County Farm Fair. Mr. Coles Roberts of Southampton coordinates this exhibit.

Mr. Larry Cauffman of Masonville coordinates the old farm gasoline engine section of the show. The putt-putt-sputter-putt of his machines serves as a calling for old engine buffs and attracts thousands of people to the exhibit. Mr. Cauffman will be shelling field corn throughout the Fair with a two-hole corn sheller, a slow process compared with our modern combines. Spectators may get a souvenir corncob.

Open Pet Show

The annual Pet Show is open to all Burlington County residents and will be held in the Show Tent at a time and date to be announced.

Registration will begin 1/2 hour before the contest. All categories will have junior (ages 1-15) and senior (16 and older) divisions. Click here for the rules. Bring your pet and possibly win a blue ribbon!
