It all comes together at the venerable International Plowing Match and Rural Expo, marking its 99th year in Roseville, just south of Kitchener, from Sept. 18-22, 2012.
As the largest event of its kind in North America, “we are expecting between 100,000 and 150,000 people depending on weather conditions,” said match chairman David Pyper.
Visitors will be amazed to see how a huge field of 323 hectares of rural farm land has been transformed into a massive tented city with roads, electricity and running water.
The business of the match includes the plowing championships along the “Queen of the Furrow” contest but events have diversified over the years into a five-day “giant family festival.”
