North Grenville’s Council joined members of the organizing committee for the 2022 International Plowing Match and Rural Expo (IPM) to unveil the official sign announcing the prime location of the event.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting the 2022 International Plowing Match and Rural Expo that will showcase North Grenville, and highlight our historic agricultural roots,” said Mayor Nancy Peckford.
The International Plowing Match and Rural Expo (IPM) is a five-day celebration of agriculture and rural living. This historic event – celebrating over 100 years – is a collaborative effort of the Ontario Plowmen’s Association and its local committee, and attracts tens of thousands of people from across Ontario, throughout Canada, the United States, and beyond.
“An event of this scale will require significant involvement and engagement from our community,” said Councillor Doreen O’Sullivan, co-chair of the volunteer committee. “We have already had an overwhelming number of people step forward to volunteer. If you want to be involved with this historic event, please reach out.”
The IPM is the largest event of its kind in North America. Participants can expect plowing competitions, opportunities to learn about agriculture through hundreds of vendors and exhibitors (large and small equipment, lifestyle items, and much more), live entertainment in multiple match venues, and so much more!
The International Plowing Match and Rural Expo will take place in North Grenville, September 20 – 24, 2022. For more information and to get involved visit www.plowingmatch.org/ipm2022.
