Please join us for IPM 2018 in Chatham-Kent--- SEPTEMBER 18 - 22, 2018

Outdoor Exhibitors at IPM

The 101st International Plowing Match and Rural Expo (IPM) is coming to Pain Court, Ontario. Please join us at IPM 2018 from September 18 - 22 as CHATHAM-KENT rolls out the red carpet to welcome you to Be a Part of History! It’s been 39 years since the last IPM was held in Chatham-Kent and the Local and Provincial Committees are planning for IPM 2018 to be a truly historic event for everyone who participates. 

The IPM is the largest outdoor event of its kind in North America. One hundred acres of fertile farmers’ fields are transformed into a Tented City with temporary streets, entertainment stages, a rodeo and other special features (such as daily food-related World Record attempts). There is so much to see and do! Surrounding Tented City are hundreds of acres of free parking for visitors, an RV Park, and of course, the competitive Plowing Fields. Within a couple of weeks after the event, the land is returned to its original condition for growing crops again.

For our expected 75,000+ visitors, we believe our exhibitors and corporate partners are the #1 attraction within Tented City. The IPM can provide great opportunities for companies and organizations to showcase their products and services.


  • All exhibitors - Join in the Opening Day Parade on Tuesday, September 18! Please send in your  parade registration form by September 4.
