The Waterman Lions Summerfest and Antique Tractor & Truck Show is always held on the third Saturday in July at Waterman Lions Park in Waterman, IL. The Waterman Lions Club conducts this as a community enrichment and fund raising project. There is no admission, and there is no charge for most events. This is a family oriented affair that offers something for everyone. The large annual increases in the size of our audience says we must be doing something right, but not without help from others. Thank you to all who have contributed so much over the years to the success of this show.

 

The next show will be on Saturday, July 21, 2018.  Please visit the other pages on this website to get a picture of what goes on at our show. Website updates will be more frequent as we approach show time.
