Rural Heritage Days

With the exception of a wartime pause, Slate River Valley has hosted plowing matches annually since 1927. Today, Rural Heritage Days have expanded to include tractor rodeos, antique demonstrations, vendors and more to entertain visitors and celebrate our local farming heritage. Visit the Doors Open booth onsite for your self-guided tour brochure. Note: $10 parking fee per vehicle
