The Waterman Lions Summerfest and Antique Tractor & Truck Show is always held on the third Saturday in July at Waterman Lions Park in Waterman, IL. There is no admission, and there is no charge for most events. This is a family oriented affair that offers something for everyone. The next show will be on Saturday, July 18, 2015.  


Our 2014 show has come and gone. We could not have asked for better weather. We saw a lot of happy faces on the biggest crowd to have ever attended our show. Many thanks to our sponsors, the many individuals who helped at the show, and all those who supported us in a variety of other ways.



New for 2014



Weather permitting, we will be featuring early morning rides in the Re/Max balloon.  We started a mini tractor pull three years ago. This year we are advancing to full size tractors. A special thank you goes to The Rock County Pullers for the excellent mini tractor pulls they provided.
