that, everyone pays the entrance fees. As some compensation, we offer a reduced

Q. Where can I get information about exhibiting or booking a table for the trade fair?
A. See the Trade Fair Exhibitors information page.
Q. Does Pioneer Acres insurance cover me for the tractor pull?
A. Pioneer Acres carries its own liability insurance to protect itself from
damages but our liability insurance does not extend to you. If you injure
someone as a result of the tractor pull, you may be held liable for damages. We strongly
recommend that you carry your own liability insurance.

A. No, you can't. During the show, we offer rides on our own golf carts with volunteers
driving them, and we operate people movers that make regular circuits around the grounds.
Q. What is your policy on wedding photography?
A. We charge a flat rate of $200 for a wedding party of up to 20 people. All
photographs must be taken outdoors. We do not allow wedding parties inside
buildings, nor can anyone climb on any exhibit.

after their dogs. No dogs allowed in any buildings. If at all possible, we

Q. Can you give me parts for my tractor?

or trade any parts or equipment.
Q. Are all areas wheelchair accessible?

concrete floors and we have wheelchair accessible washrooms but for the most part you must be mobile enough to navigate as
if you were on a farm.
Q. Do you have any eating facility on site?
A. We have a concession for lunch on the feature events and
our annual show is catered by the local Lions club. On most days there are no
food services but we have picnic tables in several places so you are welcome to bring your lunch.

rides on our own golf carts with volunteers driving them.
