Tractor Fest is a family fun event which hosts both antique and new tractors. We will also have plant machinery on site. We are hoping to have around 70 tractors on the day. There will also be games, raffles, rides and food outlets. Tractor Fest is now in its second year after a very successful first year.
The event will take place at Storforth Lane Trading Estate, Hasland, S41 0QD.
Parking on Storforth Lane Trading Estate is extremely limited. The spaces at the trading estate will be reserved for disabled badge holders. We will not be able to accommodate everyone’s cars. We would really appreciate it if you could try and find an alternative way to get to Tractor Fest, such as by walking to the event, public transport or car sharing. If you are traveling to the event in your car, please be patient with our marshals. They will do their best to find you a spot or advise you where else to park off site if they can.

Although we have asked for good weather, we cannot guarantee it! We will assess the weather running up to the event and also on the day. Certain weather conditions may affect certain activities, but the event will still go ahead.
Please check the weather the day before you come to the event and bring waterproofs and warm clothes if needed. The good news is that bad weather doesn’t bother tractors, so still expect to see lots there!
We do expect lots of families to attend but Tractor Fest is an event anybody can come to and there will be something for everyone. Obviously, we’ll have lots of tractors there and maybe one or two farmers!
Yes, well behaved dogs are more than welcome. Please bear in mind however that there will be lots of people at the event and certain area could become a little crowded, so if your dog is quite nervous, it might not be the place for them. We do ask that owners keep their dogs on leads at all times, even if they are trained. Please also remember to bring your doggy bags!
Yes! All of our shops on the trading estate that are normally open on a Sunday will be open. However, it will be very busy on the day of the event and parking will be extremely limited so, if you are not coming to Tractor Fest, it might be a good idea to hang on to your pre-loved items for our Donation Centre or arrange a visit to our coffee shop for another day. Or, just come to Tractor Fest!
Yes, there may be a small number of businesses that open on the same day. If you do intend to visit one of these businesses on the day, then please do get in touch with them before the day.
