The Buckeye Iron Will Club, Inc. was founded in 1995 when a group of friends and fellow antique collectors gathered in southern Richland County to discuss the inception of a tractor and gas engine club.
After a few years of gathering information and much preparation, the Buckeye Iron Will Club hosted its very first show in May 1997 at the Richland County Fairgrounds, Mansfield, Ohio. Since the clubs inception, the membership has grown to over 500 individuals and families.
Each year the club holds its annual tractor and gas engine show at the Richland County Fairgrounds in Mansfield, OH. International tractors and equipment; Cub Cadet garden tractors; and International engines will be featured at the 2016 show scheduled for September 9, 10 & 11. The Buckeye Iron Will Club also welcomes the Richland County Steam Threshers Association and the Buckeye Wheel Horse Collectors Club to the 2016 show.
Many events and activities take place the weekend of the show. Live entertainment, arts & crafts, kiddy pedal pull & games, pie & goodie auction as well as an antique tractor pull, gas and diesel truck pull and garden tractor pull accompanies the tractors, gas engines and vintage garden tractors on display all weekend long. There is something for everyone at the Buckeye Iron Will Club Tractor and Gas Engine Show.
Club dues are $5 per member or $10 per family and are due annually in January. Lifetime memberships are also available. For more information about joining the club or for more information about the 2016 show, please contact Dale Bemiller at or check out the clubs Show Information page.
