Due to COVID-19 there will not be a WHO Tractor Ride this year but there will be a Big Show 2020 Tractorcade!
After receiving a lot of input from sponsors, tractor riders, staff and site partners; we found that the spacing modifications that would be necessary to do a safe event at the Warren County Fairgrounds this year are just too challenging and would diminish the experience that riders have come to expect from the WHO Tractor Ride.
Fortunately we have been able to collaborate with our colleagues at WMT-AM in Cedar Rapids to present a joint event,The Big Show 2020 Tractorcade, from Sunday, Aug. 2nd to Weds, Aug. 5th. This will be headquartered at the Jones County Fairgrounds in Monticello, Iowa.
This is possible because the Jones County Fairgrounds are much larger and allow for more precautionary measures to be utilized.
