The 2020 Tractor Fest, that was due to take place at Newby Hall and Gardens in June, has been cancelled due to Coronavirus.

  • 1,500 exhibitors were expected for the popular family event over the weekend of 6th and 7th June.
  • More than 12,000 visitors were expected.
  • Organisers are now determined for an even bigger show in 2021.

A much-loved family event at Newby Hall and Gardens near Ripon has sadly been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus concern across the UK.

Tractor Fest was set for Saturday and Sunday 6th and 7th June in the beautiful surroundings of Newby Hall and Gardens; exhibitors from across the country and beyond were due to gather to show their fabulous machines to audiences young and old.

Sadly though, in light of the government's advice surrounding coronavirus, Tractor Fest tweeted earlier today to announce that this year's event was no longer taking place.
