Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

RV PARK …your way to fun at the International Plowing Match & Rural Expo
Virginia tells us that the RV Park for 2013 is already ¾ booked. As a matter of fact, Virginia told me that many of the visitors have attended the IPM for the last 20 years, travelling to each RV Park. The Brochures for 2014 will be available at this year September Expo and many book right then and there for the next year. Rumour has it that 2014 will take place in Ivy, just outside of Barrie and 2015 in Finch, Stormont County, and Ottawa way.
From the IPM website we learn … “Tented City will be located at the corner of Perth Line 36 and Perth Road 160 on Nulandia Farms at the northeast edge of Mitchell, Ontario for five amazing days September 17 - 21, 2013 when the country's largest outdoor show comes to Perth County. Help us celebrate our rural past and experience the excitement of emerging opportunities for agriculture and for our communities. Plowing competitions for all ages including a Queen of the Furrow Competition will be held.

There will be something for everyone at the IPM: 900 acres of exhibits and activities, the giant tented city with more than 500 exhibitors and vendors; antiques, education, and country lifestyle displays; including entertainment for all ages. There will be a 1500 site RV park across the road from the Tented City. Opportunities to see the latest in farm machinery and new technologies, environmental exhibits, will keep visitors busy. The Plowing competitions are also a highlight for visitors. You will be able to purchase souvenirs marking the 100th anniversary of the International Plowing Match. Check out the IPM website at (LINK). Stayed tuned for more “SCOOP”
