International Plowing Match cancelled for second year in a row, still a go for Kemptville in 2022

The Ontario Plowmen’s Association Board of Directors called the decision to cancel “heart-wrenching”.

The IPM was to be held in Lindsay this year.

The President of the Ontario Plowmen’s Association says while plans for the event were well underway, the Ontario government has not provided enough details about capacity limits and other restrictions, “The health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors, sponsors, competitors, volunteers, and staff have always been our number one priority. While we fully support the health restrictions required to conquer the Covid-19 pandemic, the unknown stipulations for large events have made it impossible to proceed with the traditional in-person IPM”.

Despite cancelling the in-person event, the directors are developing options for later this year, “Once government regulations for large gatherings are made available, the Ontario Plowmen’s Association will be making further announcements.  Stay tuned.”

The 2022 International Plowing match is scheduled to be held in Kemptville from September 20th to 24th, 2022.  The event will be centred around the former Kemptville Agricultural College Campus and the former Kemptville Agricultural College Farm.
