Chilliwack Plowing Match


The 94th annual Chilliwack Plowing Match returns to break some sod Saturday, April 2. It’s a great event for the whole family and an opportunity to reconnect with agriculture.

Among the highlights of the annual plowing match are the magnificent draft horses with sulky or walking plows, restored antique tractors with antique trailer plows and modern tractors with high tech competition plows. There are numerous classes for both draft horses and tractors and, of course, the ever-popular mayors tractor competition, which is open to mayors from Abbotsford, Agassiz, Chilliwack, Harrison Hot Springs, Hope and Mission.

Admission: $5 for adults; children under 12 and accompanied by an adult get in free.

Refreshments and lunch are served by the Sardis Kiwanis Club and there will be wagon rides and horseshoeing demonstrations.

The event takes place on Reeves Road off of Yale Road; follow the signs.

Be prepared for rain, mud, and the cold. You may wish to bring along gum boots or other warm, water-proof footwear.
