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 18, 2015.  


Welcome NW Illinois Chapter of the American Truck Historical Society! Their main annual show will be held in conjunction with our 2015 show.


The tractor pull will be just one of the many fun and exciting things going on. Welcome volunteers with Shabbona United Church of Christ who will be operating the 2015 tractor pull and some other show events.  


Max Armstrong plans to appear at our 2015 show. We are grateful to him and Mark Tuttle, DeKalb County Farm Bureau president, for helping us last year by announcing our annual Parade of Power. Max and Mark will be working together on the stage again this year. Their picture with Max's Super M was taken at the show last year.
