The Ontario Plowmen’s Association festival will be returning this summer with another round of plowing competitions, music, food and more, in a fun celebration of country living.
Launched in 1913, the International Plowing Match and Rural Expo (IPM) is an annual outdoor agricultural and rural living festival that promotes agriculture, food, tourism and regional economic development in the province.

IPM 2019 will take place in Verner, West Nipissing on September 17–21, 2019 • 8:30am – 5:00pm

Hosted in a different part of Ontario each year on prime agricultural land, the IPM showcases the host region and builds on the specific features of the region where the event is taking place.

For the IPM, 800-plus acres of farmers’ fields are transformed into a Tented City, Competition Plowing Fields, an RV Park and lots of free parking fields. The average attendance each year over the five days is more than 80,000. The event welcomes people of all ages from both rural and urban communities.
The IPM is jam-packed with things to do: daily entertainment from live bands, a rodeo, plowing competitions, over 500 exhibitors, food vendors, an interactive education area, animals, quilting exhibits and much more. Join in for the fun, shop, learn, cheer on plowing competitors and tour the community. You can’t experience it all in one day!
