DESCRIPTION


A parade through the streets of the village on the Friday creates a carnival like atmosphere, whilst such wondrous events as the firing up of the 1902 threshing machine in readiness for a working demonstration makes for an unforgettable experience.

The National Ploughing Championships are held each year at Clocolan during this Fair, and are a must see, with these wonderful machines of a by-gone era puffing and panting to the finish line amidst much laughter, excitement and cheering.

Don’t miss the hand plowing with a team of magnificent Nguni bulls. These spectacular beasts are well worth the visit all on their own!!! There are stalls, horse riding, gymkhana, bars and pubs, and on Saturday night… party time in the Showground Hall with live music and much carousing.

Have you seen a bunch of veteran tractors playing musical chairs, attended a genuine Free State “op-skop”, the sites and sounds of a real Free State “dorpie”? Then don’t miss the Vintage Tractor Fair in Clocolan ... tlo bona (come see).

PLEASE NOTE: EXACT DATES FOR 2018 STILL TO BE CONFIRMED!
