The 2024 Antique Tractor & Arts Festival will be held on Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28. The hours are from 10 am to 4 pm both days. It is our main fundraiser for the year. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us. We look forward to seeing you there. The forecast is for perfect weather for the event! 

There will be lots of tractors and other antique machinery, numerous art vendors, music, tractor parades, hayrides, a petting zoo and pedal tractors for the younger ones and of course, plenty of good food, snacks and drinks. Each year we try to add something new to delight the young and young at heart. Please visit the LGHS Event page for more information and the LGHS Facebook page for the most up-to-date information.

All of our historic buildings will be open to view and docents will be present. Don’t forget to visit the Veterans Memorial and 1st Responders and Heritage Walkway. Please enjoy our fallow field hiking trail and access to two Door County Coastal Byway informational signs spectacular Grandview Town Park vistas and Door County Land Trust hiking trails.

As always, we are looking for volunteers for the event to help in a variety of ways. If you can help, for even part of one of the days, it will be greatly appreciated. Everyone who helps will receive a coupon for a free beverage and food item. Those who volunteer throughout the year are also invited to our Volunteer Picnic on Monday, August 5, for more good food and camaraderie. Please contact Dave Westen at dcwesten@gmail.com for additional volunteer and AT&AF information.
