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. There is no admission, and there is no charge for most events. This is a family oriented affair that offers something for everyone. The next show will be on Saturday, July 16, 2016.  

This web site is a continual work in process and updates are random. The frequency will increase as we near show time.

Planning for the 2016 show is well underway. The Waterman Lions Club remains committed to the theme of an affordable day of family fun, food, and entertainment. Changes and additions are planned, but most of the activities listed on the 2015 schedule on the events page will continue. We hope to post a preliminary 2016 schedule in early June. 

This show is result of volunteers and donors giving their time, cash, and other resources. Funding comes from donations provided by our sponsor/donors. 2015 sponsor/donors are listed below left and on the sponsor page. The list will be updated for 2016 as new donations come in.
