Welcome to the Mid Michigan Old Gas Tractor Association website!
We hope you will make full use of our website by exploring the various categories of information and entertainment offered here. Don’t forget to check back frequently to see the most recent updates.
Conceived in 1974, the MMOGTA is a non-profit organization, whose stated mission is the preservation and restoration of antique farming methods and machinery and the production and presentation of an annual show featuring both. We make good on that promise as we welcome you to one of the biggest, busiest, and best antique tractor shows in the Midwest every year on the 3rd weekend in August,.
What began as a small, neighborhood threshing bee, has now become the destination of choice for antique tractor enthusiasts and collectors from Michigan and several states around us. At the Mid-Michigan Old Gas Tractor Association's first meeting we could seat the entire membership around one picnic table and still have room for the dog, but we now claim well over 400 member families as perhaps our most valuable asset.
The park-like environment of our showgrounds boasts dozens of buildings to house numerous resident display items, and the facilities and infrastructure required to support the thousands of visitors who attend our events. The Mid Michigan Old Gas Tractor Club or Oakley Tractor Club as it is sometimes called has fielded a couple of thousand registered exhibits, and we host several hundred camping units each year.
The MMOGTA's annual show features an almost endless schedule of events and attractions with many choices at any given moment. Live crop harvesting, threshing, plowing, and tillage demos will be running in one area while 2 or more tractor pulling events may be under way in another. You will want to see the veneer mill, visit the handle mill barn, help carry boards away from the sawmill, and smell the dust of the flour mill. You will also want to tour the vast acres of displayed tractors and machinery in one of our comfortable people movers; shop through the flea market and the arts and crafts areas; help hammer out an artifact in the Blacksmith shop; and rest awhile in the bingo tent. Make sure you treat yourself to a fantastic home-cooked meal or visit any of the dozens of food vendors around the grounds. You also won’t want to miss the Chicken Barbeque on Sunday. Come early for the pancake breakfast and stay late for the live music and dancing. Much more show information, schedules, and maps can be found on this website. On the 3rd weekend in August we invite you to come to learn, come to participate, come to enjoy, as we recreate the golden era of agricultural and industrial mechanization.
