It takes a lot of man hours and dedication to run this event and the weekend would never happen without the generosity of local businesses that sponsor some of our participants as well as numerous volunteers, Tyrconnell Heritage Society members and presenters who come for the entire weekend simply out of a love for agriculture and heritage machinery.
Join us on Labour Day weekend 2009 and discover what's new in antique machinery at the annual Heritage Farm Show on the grounds of the Backus-Page House on the Lake Erie shoreline.

Volunteers from the Tyrconnell Heritage Society were happy to provide a first hand look at the local woodland inhabitants, historical culinary practices and the skills necessary to forge a life along Colonel Talbot's corduroy road. Campers were encouraged to explore their creative side with special crafts planned for each week's session. Activities took advantage of our surroundings with found objects used to make quaint souvenirs. An afternoon spent in the traditional art of tombstone rubbing resulted in unique and timeless images that will bring back wonderful memories for years to come. The weekly family BBQ was a great time for parents to share in the camp's activities with a wrap up slide show of digital photos taken daily throughout the each session.
