Sublimity Harvest Festival

This listing is provided by Travel Salem

The Sublimity Harvest Festival started in 1973 as a competition between local farmers to see whose tractor could pull the farthest. In the early years a “sled” was hooked to the back of the tractor while farmers and spectators lined the track. As the sled was pulled down the track the people would jump on and add weight until the tractor could not pull any further. The distance was measured using a hand-held tape. Forty-nine years later the same friendly competition takes place but with people coming from all over the Western United States and lasting three days.

In the years since, there have been many additions to the tractor pulls including truck pulls, ATV pulls, and MONSTER trucks. This year celebrates 50 Years of the Sublimity Harvest Festival, and you don’t want to miss a minute.
