Founded eight years ago by Doreen Macklen, her husband Dale and son Jim, all of Boylston in northern Oswego County, the show has grown into a “heritage show and tell” of vintage farm machinery, crafts, music, and traditional agricultural activities from the rural North Country.

Visitors can see how fly wheels were used generations ago to run antique farm equipment, watch garden tractors compete against each other, and cheer on the operators in radio controlled truck pulls.

“We strive to offer a little bit of everything to satisfy every member of the family,” said Doreen Macklen.

Lone Cow Poke Doug Corey of the Circle C Ranch in Phoenix will return with his authentic Circle C Cowboy Camp, a unique living history display.

Corey, who calls himself a “cowboyologist,” is a member of the Western Chuck Wagon Association and his camp is registered as completely authentic.

Tractor drivers will show off their skills Saturday in the “antique” and “out of field” tractor pulls with transfer sleds.

Not to be outdone, the Central NY Garden Tractor Pullers Association will hold lawnmower pulls in the “super modified” and “off the lawn” classes on Sunday.

The U.S. Army band “Avalanche” will perform at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Dancing Goats Farms will have goats on hand, along with their popular goat milk soaps, and Two Chicks Farm will bring alpacas.

Kids can play a variety of games and compete on a pedal tractor to see who can pull the heaviest load.

Other events include the Hawks radio controlled air show and a corn maze.

A variety of craft vendors and refreshments will be available.

The Oswego County Fairgrounds are handicap-accessible.

Salmon River’s Special Fly-Fishing, Catch-and-Release Areas

When it comes to world-class fisheries, you’d be hard pressed to find one that isn’t chopped up into special-interest sections. Oswego County’s Salmon River is a pioneer in this process, offering a place for every fishing taste. Its most famous section is at its headwaters a short distance from the Lower Reservoir’s dam. Restricted to fly-fishing, catch-and-release only, this mystique is more than purist anglers can resist. But there’s more to the place than just image.
