In short, the International Plowing Match and Rural Expo (IPM) is a five-day celebration of agriculture and rural living. There are plowing competitions, a range of activities for people of all ages, numerous opportunities to learn about agriculture, near-constant live entertainment in multiple Match venues, hundreds of vendors and exhibitors (large and small equipment, lifestyle items and much more), a wide variety of food … the list goes on.
It’s the largest event of its kind in North America. With so much to see and do, plan to spend more than one day!
Hosting the IPM – heading into its 103rd year – is a collaborative effort of the Ontario Plowmen’s Association and a local committee. It’s held in a different community each year, highlighting the many great things the area has to offer and attracting 80,000+ people from across Ontario, throughout Canada, the United States and beyond.
