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.


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 20, 2019. The schedule is posted on the Events page. Website updates will become more frequent as we approach the show date.
