The Farmers’ Museum Postpones Tractor Fest In Favor of Its Celebration of Autumn Event

Written By Editor on 9/26/21 | 9/26/21

The Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown has canceled its fall event, Tractor Fest, originally scheduled for October 9-10. In its place, the museum is encouraging the public to visit on weekends through October 11 to experience its ongoing seasonal event Celebration of Autumn (visit for more information). Tractor Fest, which attracts upwards of 2,500 visitors, will return in 2022 when the issue of indoor crowding ceases to pose any potential COVID-related public health risks. 


The Farmers' Museum remains open to the public through October 31, when it closes for the season. Events such as Thanksgiving at The Farm and Holiday Lantern Tours are still scheduled to take place later in the 2021.


Hours: Through October 11 (open daily, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.) and October 12-31: (open Tuesday–Sunday, 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m., closed Mondays). Please visit for ticket prices and additional information.
