National Farm Machinery Show shifts dates
The 2021 National Farm Machinery Show and Championship Tractor Pull has shifted dates and will now be held March 31 thru April 3, 2021. The National Farm Machinery Show is the largest indoor farm show in the country and is normally held in February, in Louisville.
In addition to the date shift, NFMS has enacted several new procedures to help stop the spread of COVID-19, including required face masks for everyone in attendance and registration for every attendee for contact tracing and attendance management. The trade show will also be conducted in a hybrid model, allowing for both in-person and virtual attendance.
David Beck, president, and CEO of Kentucky Venues says the National Farm Machinery Show is important to the ag community and by shifting the dates, it allows more time to deliver a safe event. He says after the success of their other events and earning accreditation from the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association for our sanitization and outbreak prevention procedures, the group feels confident they can safely produce the crucial event.
The Championship Tractor Pull shows will be live-streamed and in-person attendance will be capped at 33% or around 7,000 people.
This is the 56th annual National Farm Machinery Show and 53rd annual Championship Tractor Pull.
