Castalia Tractor Days and Revival Aug. 31

This year’s Castalia Tractor Days and Revival will be held Saturday, Aug. 31, at 3 p.m., at the city park/ball diamond. 

Castalia native Jeff Stee, with the help of local volunteers, created the “Revival” in summer 2023 as a means of recreating an annual Castalia community celebration; because the town’s “Tractor Days” hadn’t been held since before the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The event will kick off at 3 p.m., with the tractor parade and cruise through the ballpark; the car and tractor show will follow at 4 p.m. From 4 to 6 p.m., favored regional rock ‘n’ roll cover soloist “Shawnster” will perform, and the golfcart, lawnmower and UTV parade will begin at 6 p.m. Nathan Tricky Allen will perform a magic and comedy show from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and the fireworks show will be held at 8:30 p.m. 

After the fireworks, attendees are invited to Krueg’s First Chance Saloon for a performance by “Smoking Gun Showdown” and a street dance. Additionally, the event will feature a group from the Postville Farmers Market, a bouncy house, face painters, balloon artists and food trucks. This year’s event will also feature the Winneshiek County Dairy Promoters’ Moo Mobile.

The event’s committee has raised about 25 percent of the approximate $4,000 needed to hold the event as planned, and volunteers are appreciated. For information on how to help, call Jeff Stee at 563-380-3855, Jim Tangen at 563-568-7582 or visit the event’s Facebook page “Castalia Tractor Days/Revival”.
