Hawk Museum celebrates 29th annual farm show

By Staff | Jun 11, 2018

There’s something for everyone this weekend at the Dale and Martha Hawk Museum in Wolford. The show kicked off on Friday and continues through the weekend. The Museum is celebrating the 29th Annual Show at the facility which is located four miles east of Wolford and three miles north. These are the type of directions you get in North Dakota; first you go here then you look east and take the first left you come to. It’s right there on the corner, northeast corner.

Many events will be happening as well as live music both Saturday and Sunday throughout the festival. Saturday night is a dance in the evening with live music. Each day there will be a parade with Saturday’s at 4 p.m. and Sunday’s at 2 p.m. Come out and see if you can identify the year and make of the tractors. They look new, but they are older than most of us. An all faith’s church service will be held at 9 a.m. on Sunday, and all are welcome.

The main event this year features some new ‘old’ tractors, antique car show, many indoor exhibits with dolls, and everything antique. Did I mention the food? This event has some of the best food in North Dakota each year. One of the specialty events is pie! There is every kind of delicious pie and they are all homemade by local bakers. Last year the lemon meringue was a showcase as well as Strawberry Rhubarb which is always a summer hit.

There is room for campers, trailers and if you prefer tents. Last year it was a little noisy until late as all the folks visited, and the music carried on.

On Saturday, there will be a demonstration of local fire engines and firemen alike. Martha’s kitchen will be providing home made meals all day at a reasonable price. Saturday night features a dance which starts at 9.

The Craft and Art Show will be running all weekend, with something for the whole family, even a candy store with old time candies. Local artists and craftsmen will have their unique individual items for sale, and many vendors will do demonstrations of sewing, yarn work, painting and carving.

Gate admission for the weekend is $10 per person. Note a change this year: Exhibitors are allowed only one personal utility vehicle per unit (steam engine, tractor, car, etc.) and secondly, no personal utility vehicles allowed unless a State Disability sticker is present.

Once you get there, it will be hard to go home. The relaxed atmosphere, BBQ smell and sun will made you glad you came. Bring the RV or pitch a tent, and remember to bring a chair and some bug repellent, although last year there weren’t any mosquitoes. Well behaved dogs are welcome and please pick up after them, if you don’t have a bag, ask someone. Everyone appreciates your dog until they don’t.
