The Strathcona Vintage Tractor Association is proud to host its annual Vintage Tractor Pull August 24-25, 2019. The Tractor Pull will be held at the Bremner Historic Site located at 53452 RR 225, Sherwood Park (see map below).
In previous years we have had over 100 tractors competing in ten classes from under 2500 lbs (Ultra Flyweight) to 12000 lbs (Class 6). This includes four weight classes for the lighter tractors under 4000 pounds. Weight classes and pull rules are posted at the bottom of the page. We have a drive-on electronic scale for determining tractor-with-operator weight. Vintage tractors must be "stock" 1960 and older to compete, and all competitors are welcome. Non-stock vintage tractors can participate in demonstration pulls.
There are activities for all members of the family including horse and wagon rides, children's toy tractor pulling, a kid's play area, silent auction, vendor tent, static displays, noon hour parade of power and various vintage farming demonstrations including stooking and harvesting with a threshing machine. Tours of the historic Bremner Mansion are offered by Strathcona County staff. We ask that visitors do not bring pets on site. Food concessions are on site as well as grandstands and a shelter tent for spectators. You may bring your own lawn chairs if you wish.
A $5 admission fee will be charged at the gate for spectators and pullers. Pullers will NOT be charged gate admission if they are working at the pull, however they must be an SVTA member to participate ($35 for an annual membership in the club). Memberships can be purchased at registration.
Weighing in and registration starts late afternoon Friday and into the evening, and drivers are required to attend a safety meeting before pulling on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Hauling trailers can be left on site over the weekend and some sites are available for overnight RV parking at no charge. Participants are required to read and sign a legal waiver absolving the SVTA and its members of any responsibility or incident that might arise during the event. Pullers are encouraged to read our 3rd party insurance coverage requirements (posted on this website) before arriving at the pull. When registering, pullers will be required to sign an insurance declaration in addition to the waiver.
