The Lake County Farm Heritage Association and the Lake County Fair Association have teamed up to present this fun weekend, celebrating Lake County’s historic agricultural heritage. For the past 24 years the Farm Heritage Association has brought their antique tractors, farm equipment and working farm displays together at Lakewood Forest Preserve for the public to enjoy. This beloved tradition now continues at the Lake County Fairgrounds.
