Going into its 19th year, the former All Colour Show was a representation of various antique tractors with clubs at Country Heritage Park (and their outside affiliates) bringing together models from specific companies. Such events include Massey Ferguson weekends, Ford and John Deere weekends, and International Harvester (Big Red) weekends. These individual companies and the owners of these tractors are committed to ensuring the longevity of these relics from a bygone era.

However, antique tractors, despite having an appeal to a fair number of dedicated enthusiasts throughout Ontario and even North America, is not ensuring that the public attends these events in greater numbers, and, in fact, there are declining numbers for all so-called "tractor"; shows throughout the continent - simply because the aging of these dedicated men and women has meant most are no longer "gathering". Simply put, in order to follow the mandate of Country Heritage Park, its board, and its membership, changes needed to be conducted in order to ensure that the cornerstone (these antique tractors) remained but the rest of the three-day event was altered. Thus was born the Summer Fair and Farm Expo – a first in Ontario. 

Country Heritage Park (CHP) is an 80-acre site depicting a rural crossroads community reflective of the past 185 years, complete with historic buildings, fairgrounds, and a story built into the fabric of the innovators and entrepreneurs who built the foundations of modern food and farming, and guide its future even today. Nestled in the shadow of the Niagara Escarpment, and on the western frontier of the fastest growing community in Canada (being Milton), CHP provides a unique rural-urban bridge to the more than seven-million residents of the GTA.

It is within this context that CHP is expanding its focus on both food and families - to be able to showcase and highlight the importance of our farming history while putting the spotlight on innovation. Along with numerous heritage buildings being open to the public with interpreters onsite role playing Canadian history there have been a number of new features added that will draw families from throughout the province: the heavy horse pulls; the lawn tractor pulls and pedal pulls for children; the tractor and truck pulls; Kids Zone area with hands on activities, crafts, entertainment; a fully enclosed swap and parts meet/Flea market (for all ages); a Classic Car Cruiser show; beer garden; and our newest addition to the Summer Fair, "Farm To Fork Market" - consisting of local food booths and chefs.
