Vintage Tractor Fair (Clocolan)
When: Dates to be confirmed
We regret, the dates for this event have not yet been confirmed with us. Our apologies for any inconvenience. Event organiser please contact us with the date for this event.
A parade through the streets of the village on the Friday creates a carnival like atmosphere, whilst such wondrous events as the firing up of the 1902 threshing machine in readiness for a working demonstration makes for an unforgettable experience.
The National Ploughing Championships are held each year at Clocolan during this Fair, and are a must see, with these wonderful machines of a by-gone era puffing and panting to the finish line amidst much laughter, excitement and cheering.
Don’t miss the hand plowing with a team of magnificent Nguni bulls. These spectacular beasts are well worth the visit all on their own!!! There are stalls, horse riding, gymkhana, bars and pubs, and on Saturday night… party time in the Showground Hall with live music and much carousing.
Have you seen a bunch of veteran tractors playing musical chairs, attended a genuine Free State “op-skop”, the sites and sounds of a real Free State “dorpie”? Then don’t miss the Vintage Tractor Fair in Clocolan ... tlo bona (come see).
