Ohio Two Cylinder Club hosts the Eastern National Expo every other year, at a location in Ohio. As our Club’s mission is to promote interest in the preservation, restoration, and exhibition of antique John Deere products, our Expo is a great way to share our green enthusiasm, give everyone a place to come and talk tractors, meet old and new friends, share stories, and showcase our green machines.

The cost to display one or more tractors and implements is only $10 per person, which includes two 3-day passes (a $24 value), a one-year Ohio Two Cylinder Club membership (a $15 value), and a show packet. Registration Forms are available here.
Admission cost is $5.00 per person, or a 3-day pass for $12.00. Kids age 12 and under are free. This is a family-friendly event. Free parking is available inside the racetrack.
The Registration Desk is located under the Grandstand. Anyone needing to register their tractor or golf cart, please come to the Registration Desk when you arrive.
Expo apparel available now!
Order your Expo t-shirt by mail-in form with a personal check or through our online webstore to get your choice of size and color of t-shirt. We have sizes available by preorder only up to size 6X. We are counting on preorders, and will only have a limited quantity of Large and XL size Expo t-shirts available at the show.
Golf Carts & Rentals
We will provide a limited supply of golf carts for rental on the grounds. You may pre-register (until May 30) a three-day rental of golf carts in order to ensure your transportation. Golf Cart Registration Forms are available here.
Attendees may bring their personal golf cart, Gator, or utility vehicle onto the Expo grounds with proper registration and payment of a $5 fee, per vehicle. The registration desk is located under the Grandstand.
We have RV camping available on site with water and electric hookup. Camping forms are available here.
Antique Tractor Pull
Our Antique Tractor Pull is for John Deere tractors only, and only models up to 1973 may participate. You must display your tractor in order to pull. This event will be held Friday afternoon. Tractor Pull rules are available here.
If you display a tractor, you are invited to show off your skills at our Tractor Games on Thursday afternoon. We have everything from a Blindfolded Obstacle Course to the tricky Barrel Roll. The only thing you win is bragging rights, but it’s a fun competition. For age 16 and over.
On Friday and Saturday, at noon, we’ll have a Tractor Parade on the track in front of the Grandstand. Anyone who displays a tractor is invited to participate. People can sit in the covered bleachers in the Grandstand and view the wide mix of participating tractors drive past. A Masters of Ceremonies will announce information about each tractor and its owner.
Lawn and Garden Tractors
Bring your John Deere lawn and garden tractors to display. Garden tractor enthusiasts will be at home at our Expo right alongside the big tractors. We’ll have a building set aside for “feature” lawn and garden tractors.
We hope to provide you with interesting and informative seminars at our Expo, with an opportunity for speakers to take your questions after each seminar. For our 2020 Expo, we have confirmation that speakers will include Clint Snyder of Snyder Hot Shot Truck & Trailer in Wooster, Ohio; Richard Hain, publisher of Green Magazine; Kenneth Weaver of Weaver’s Magneto Repair in Shiloh, Ohio; Steve Fender of Ageless Iron Restoration, and an officer from the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Parts Vendors and Toy Vendors
Our Expo may see forty or fifty vendors or more showcasing their wares, with inside and outside sales. Come buy just the tractor part you needed, that hard-to-find service manual, or a vintage John Deere Ertl toy tractor just like you had as a kid. These vendors come from all over to display their products for your perusal.
Threshing and Shelling Demonstrations
For old-time fun, we’ll have a John Deere Model 4030 tractor with a JD Model 71 corn sheller demonstrating the art of shelling corn. We’ll also have a JD Model D tractor with a JD threshing machine and wheat bundles for demonstration. It’s noisy, messy, and fun to watch.
We’ll have displays of John Deere collectibles. If you have a JD collection you’d like to put on view at the Expo, contact Vicki Slater at 330-201-1935. We have limited number of cases.
Buy and Sell at The Trading Post
Consign your John Deere parts, tires, tractors, toys, tools, memorabilia, antiques or farm-related items, big or small, and turn them into cash! Bring your items to the Expo and stop in to see the gentlemen at our Trading Post. You set your own price for each item, and you do not need to be an Ohio Two Cylinder Club member to participate.
Expo attendees are encouraged to stop by The Trading Post daily to peruse the items for sale. You never know what may show up!
JR Acres Museum Tour
A highlight of Thursday evening is the chance to visit the museums at JR Acres, just outside of Wooster. This family’s personal museum is not open to the public, but as an Expo attendee, you will get the opportunity to tour this wonderland of agricultural memories at no charge. Just allow yourself plenty of time to visit each nook and cranny.
Memorabilia Consignment Auction
Our Memorabilia Consignment Auction on Friday evening may give you an opportunity to find just the John Deere pedal tractor or bundle of sales literature you were looking for. We never know what will show up!
Consider consigning your John Deere items whether small, medium or large to an
audience particularly interested in John Deere items!

We’ll have a loading dock, loader trailer, a skid steer and volunteers willing to help you unload. We prefer items come in on Wednesday, as attendees peruse the auction goods each day.
