Oceana Antique tractors

Oceana Antique TractorS

is preserving the heritage of "old iron" as we participate in many activities, often with stock antique tractors and equipment along with garden tractor pulls and activities.

founded in 1999

By antique tractor and Old Iron enthusiasts

From Oceana and surrounding counties



Oceana Antique TractorS was established in 1999 by a group of tractor enthusiasts who had an interest in preserving and restoring antique tractors and farm equipment.

The group has grown tremendously over the past few years due to an active event calendar allowing everyone in the group to participate in some way throughout the year.

The secret to our success is a group of people who work together to get the job done. Members in the group "pitch-in" as needed at events and meetings, bringing success to our club.

Our first event is held on March 17th with the St. Patrick’s Day Mud Run with other activities going through October 4th & 5th, closing with the Woodland Market Fall Festival.

The OAT’s group does not endorse one brand of tractor over another but does require regulations to be met when participating in official tractor pulls.

We are pleased to say, "We get bigger every year." Monthly meetings are held for organizational purposes on the second Thursday of each month.

We are quite proud of our OAT’s shows that are held at the Woodland Market in Shelby. This gives our group time to develop our skills while being supportive of each other, building friendships, and learning together.

We try to make our events "family" oriented to allow time for children of all ages to experience and learn about the past history and use of old iron.

Stop by and "check out" our activities sometime. Who knows, you just might have a good time!
