The pickup truck has its own mystique, with two wheels on the street and two firmly in the dirt! Now's the time to get out of the bed, get behind the wheel -- and pull!!
Full Pull Productions brings a terrifying show to town, with rules for entry detailed on rules page of this website. If you can't make it onto the track, then at least pull your weight in the Grandstand to cheer on your favorite drivers!
Call the Fair office for more information at (607) 692-4149 or visit Full Pull Productions at fullpullproductions.com.
You could have had a V-8! a V8 Modified Crunchathon!
The shudder of hot metal as cars are smashed to pieces – it's a sight to be seen and felt only on Wednesday this year, so don't miss it – come see the sparks fly! These cars are built to crash! Scraped up and dusted off, they won't fall to rust at the Demolition Derby on Wednesday, July 24th at 6:00! Metal on metal, these cars and trucks will screech in salute of the big crunch - ouch! That's gotta hurt! This event will knock the wind out of you!
Don't miss a single collision!
These smash-'m up gear-grinders spend long hours making their cars wrecking-ready.
In moments they'll be smashed to smithereens -- Don't blink! Fun for all ages, this event is a highlight of the fair! (See also video of the
V-8 Feature, the Mini Van Feature, and the V-6 Feature.) For information about the derby consult the rules page of this website, call Alex Decker at (570) 637-7680 or Lance Brunick at (607) 222-1475, or call the Fair office at (607) 692-4149.
Straining muscles against monstrous weight, the horses will have their hayday on Thursday at 5 and 7pm. These horse powerhouses pull a cinderblock sled through the dust to prove that it was their flesh and bone that built the farms around us.
No doubt you will admire the grace of these beasts of burden as you honor their incredible contribution to our heritage. Their hooves claw the dirt as their muscles pump to the finish line, breaking the clock and testing the boundaries of animal might! For information about the rules of these contests, consult the rules page of this website, or call the Whitney Point Fairgrounds at (607) 692-4149.
They won't pull it if they think they can't do it, but when they do pull, muscles bulge and straps snap taut!
Pure "Ponypower." It takes a well-conditioned pair of ponies, a skilled teamster, and a precise teamwork between man and pony to compete in a pony pull. From here all the way to over there -- no more complaining about taking out the garbage! These pony teams demonstrate their will and ability to each other in a frenzy of strained muscle and hoof. They mean it! For more information consult the rules page of this website, or call the Whitney Point Fairgrounds at (607) 692-4149.

Semi Truck Pull
The Big Rigs return to pound the hearts of attendees of the Whitney Point Fairgrounds on Saturday, July 27th at 1 pm. The day is full of both truck and tractors! Watch the ground pounding action as 12,000 horsepower trucks and tractors head for the finish line 300 feet down a specially prepared track. These muscle-pulling machines can weigh up to 20,000 and lug up 60,000 pounds to the finish in over 10 seconds flat! The Semi Truck pull has its own curb appeal! Some of that "street cred" can be seen earlier in the day at the Pride and Polish parade! Wes and Ann Henninger, who began this event 13 years ago, can be contacted for information at (607) 213-5014. Also a complete set of rules for the street legal semi pull competition is available at the Whitney Point Fairgrounds office and online at the rules page of this website.
Semi Truck Pride and Polish Parade
DJ Smith from Trucker's Chrome brings a parade of shining metal at noon on Saturday, July 27th, to the Grandstand track. With awards for the biggest and the brightest, Mr. Smith gives recognition to the semi trucks with the most sass and pizzazz, prior to the actual pulls later at 1 pm, though no pulling is required for a medal of metal! DJ Smith is also a proud sponsor of our Semi Truck Pull event listed above. Let's watch the rolling semis with smiling grills strut their stuff on this big parade day!
This future's so bright, you gotta wear shades! For information contact Wes and Ann Henninger at (607) 213-5014 or consult the rules page of this website

With a bit of friendly banter among the crowd about which tractor is the best make and model, the antique tractor pull is sure to be fun. After their unbelievable pulls, they'll pull out their timepieces and set a spell in the midway all fair long to display the lasting value of the tractors of yesteryear.
