Tractor pulls, live music, and monster trucks—an entertainment combination that has proven such a potent mix that Sublimity Harvest Festival has used it to lure families to its end-of-summer event since 1973. On September 9, a full schedule of happenings closes out the festival’s 40th anniversary. The day kicks off with pull events, such as ATV pulls and horse pulls, where teams of draft horses lug a sled loaded up with more than 1,500 pounds. Then crowds gather around the fairgrounds to watch tractors pull their weight and monster trucks pull off impressive feats as they roll through the dirt and attempt to prove that they’re only monsters on the outside. Accompanying this spectacle is The Once A Month Band, which defies its name by playing again in the evening, arming fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and harmonicas as they seamlessly blend bluegrass, pop, and rock after comedic performer Hart Keene commands the stage with magic tricks and effortless charisma. The KidZone also keeps children entertained with bounce houses, a zip line, a rock wall, and a mechanical bull.
Though Sublimity Harvest Festival sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Sublimity Harvest Festival
Each year since 1973, on the weekend after Labor Day, engines rumble the very foundation of Sublimity. The Harvest Festival began as a simple tractor pull, and while that event remains a highlight, some of its wheels have gotten considerably bigger and more monstery. And that's not the only thing about the festival that's grown. Now a three-day affair, the schedule bursts at the mid-section with events such as a Fun Run, a parade, a KidZone with bounce houses and rides, and bands and magicians on the Coors Light stage. Yet all the fun and engine flexing is for a good cause. More than 25 community organizations, including the Sublimity Fire Department and Relay for Life, benefit from the festival's proceeds.
