The HCAT & EC annual tractor show is held on the 2nd Friday and Saturday in June at the Gillespie County Fairgrounds. Some of the activities held each year include but are not limited to: tractor displays, engine displays, blacksmithing, antique tractor pulls, agricultural machinery demonstrations such as thrashing wheat and baling straw, several different corn processing demonstrations and a tractor parade that features the tractors participating in the show, giving a brief history on each.
Our sawmill gives an op close look at sawing and plane-ing wood the old fashioned way. We feature a replica 1920’s farm house that will take you back to yesteryear, giving you a feel for what it was like to live in that era. Several children’s activities are held throughout the day on Saturday. A variety of vendors are on hand to sell their treasurers. Food and drink are also available during the show for your convenience. If you want to take a closer look into the past, please join us for a fun filled weekend.
