The John Deere Pavilion provides fun and learning for all ages. You can explore the equipment, learn about farming operations, construction and forestry, and even use the simulators to test your operational skills! This is a must if you are visiting the QC area.

My farmer father enjoyed looking at fancy new tractors while the 7 years and younger crew played with gears and built bridges and the high schoolers did virtual reality back hoeing.

If you think you will see only Tractors you will be wrong. Yes, there are a few tractors but there is also a huge combine, some bulldozers and a futuristic logging machine. Most of these you get to climb up into the driver's seat and...More
