Join us for the 6th Annual Truck and Tractor Day at Winterthur—a fun day filled with lots of large equipment sure to delight the wheel-oriented kids in your family. Explore tractors, modern farm vehicles, and the Winterthur fire trucks. Enjoy a hayride, arts and crafts, and more!


 

  • Discover 30 tractors and other pieces of estate equipment.
     
  • Hop onto one of the original Winterthur farm trucks and see how a modern backhoe and crane work. Feel free to take pictures and ask our knowledgeable staff and volunteers questions.
     
  • Learn about the Winterthur Fire Department!
     
  • Meet our firefighters and put out a “fire” with our pumper truck. Hop aboard the fire truck and try on real “turnout gear.”
     
  • Enjoy a hotdog, pretzels, and ice cream!
     
  • Take a hayride through the estate!
     
  • Enjoy the beautiful autumn weather and changing leaves.
     
  • Climb a tree!
     
  • Put on a safety harness and climb a tree, just like a real arborist.
     
  • Get creative with farm- and tractor-related crafts.
     
  • Look for helmets, badges, and coloring book giveaways!
