"We are pleased to be having our 23rd annual farm show and plowing match in the municipality of Tweed. The show is Hosted by Doug and Patsy Countryman. Co-hosts are Glen and Debbie Holmes and Bruce and Lori Palmateer, also thanks to Tim Hunt and family for supplying land for parking.

The show site address is 2 Countryman Road and runs Aug 17th and 18th.

We have a tented city consisting of 250 plus exhibitions displaying the latest agricultural equipment and products. There are many agricultural services displaying their products and capabilities along with technical support.

For the antique buffs and curious the very large display of antique tractors and equipment attracts the young and old. Again this year a vintage stationary Case steam engine will be providing the power for our threshing demonstration, Of course the antique tractor parade is a major attraction.

For our woodlot and conservation minded people our large woodlot and display and demonstration is a must see.

Not to be left out our ladies committee provides an excellent program of crafters, fashion show, and many other activities to please the ladies.

The children are not forgotten either, there are crafts in the children's tent plus new activities this year to keep the children entertained. "
