WELCOME to the 2013 WHO Tractor Ride


(Des Moines, IA) The tractors, 537 to be exact, are coming to Northwest Iowa on June 23-26 for the WHO Radio Great Iowa Tractor Ride! With more than 750 participants, and another 400+ family members, this event promises to get people talking TRACTORS!

“We are really excited to use Sioux City as our home base this year,” said Janine Van Vark, one of the many coordinators of the event. “The people here have been absolutely fantastic to work with and have made us feel like we are at home and a part of their community.”

The WHO Radio Great Iowa Tractor Ride will begin on Sunday, June 23rd. According to Van Vark, tractors and participants will begin rolling in sometime around 8 AM on Sunday the 23rd, and continue throughout the day. “Sunday is our gathering day, where the participants register, get their tractors shined up and this year will spend time sharing stories.” We encourage the public to come and look over the Tractors, visit with the Drivers and look through our Sponsor displays. Tractors will be on the streets early on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as we cloverleaf out to nearby communities. We return to Sioux City, our home base location, at the end of each day.

“WHY” a WHO Tractor Ride?

Now that you have all of the information, you may be wondering WHY a Tractor Ride? We all come together for four days of fun, fellowship and a celebration of Iowa’s rich agricultural heritage. We hope to make a positive impact in your communities, and perhaps bring a smile or encourage an old childhood memory. The Drivers might not see each other, or even talk to their Tractor Ride Buddies again until next year, but for the hundreds that participate, it’s become an annual family “tradition“ that is looked forward to every year. That is “WHY” WHO Radio has continued this event for 17 years and plans to continue for many more.
