Tractorcade is postponed

     The Great Eastern Iowa Tractorcade, which was scheduled to begin and end in Monticello June 7-10, has been postponed to a later, to-be-determined date in 2020.

     Radio station WMT-AM made the announcement May 1 based on caution, stating that the official date would be announced later.

     For more than 20 years, tractorcades have been held in small towns throughout Iowa every June, bringing together hundreds of drivers and their tractors of all makes and models, to ride alongside and over the farmlands of Iowa.

     “As much as we all enjoy the annual tractor enthusiast gathering in Eastern Iowa, we have to be cognizant of the current environment,” said Matt Kenney, events manager for WMT. “Whether we postpone it for a few months or until 2021, we will communicate with our riders and our host partners as soon as the decision has been made.”

     All currently registered drivers for either rides will carry their 2020 registrations to the new date. Drivers who wish to request a refund of their 2020 registration fee need to download the refund request form from Please allow up to 60 days for refund requests.
