However, the farm machinery company will have some of its equipment featured during the event, according to a report from the Dover Post. Both new implements and older ones will be showcased during the fair, which runs from July 22-31.
"And the shiny, new farm equipment is shown off side by side with antique tractors, so there's a history lesson in store, too," the newspaper reported.
The fair will feature a number of other attractions, including racing pigs and the cooking styles of Paula Deen, who will host a cooking demonstration on July 23. Some people may even get to take part in the fair themselves through participating in two different talent shows.
Obviously, not everyone will be able to make it out to Delaware to take part in the fair. However, John Deere recently announced it's working on opening a new museum in Iowa dedicated to the history of the company's tractors and engines. It will open sometime next year and will be located in Waterloo.
