One of the favorite places visitors enjoy at Centerburg's Oldtime Farming Festival is the tractor area. Over one hundred old farm tractors are on display each year along with many vintage garden tractors, hit and miss gasoline engines, a steam engine, and several pieces of old farm machinery from the 1960's era and earlier. Here various demonstrations periodically take place both days of the Festival with a vintage threshing machine, stationary baler, a grist mill, corn sheller, hit and miss engines and other belt-driven machinery.
The final event of the 2016 Tractor Show featured the annual parade of tractors around the park led by the Festival Grand Marshal, Jim Sherman. This took place on Sunday at 3:30 pm providing a close-up view of the owners and drivers of these remarkable old tractors.
Anyone wishing to bring vintage farm equipment to the Festival is welcome to do so. The Harold "Butch" Cordle Memorial Award is always presented to the person bringing a small engine the farthest distance. Butch served as the first Parade Marshal at the Festival in 1995. The title was changed to Festival Marshal in 2000.

Folks love this opportunity to reminisce and talk to their children and grandchildren about life on the farm many years ago.
