For the past 5 years, the Bishop Hill Heritage Association has hosted a Toy Tractor Weekend at the Steeple Building Museum, located at 103 North Bishop Hill Street. At this event, local collectors display a variety of John Deere, Case, International Harvester, and other brands of toy tractors and farm implements for one weekend only. These toys are for display only. This year’s weekend is April 1 and 2, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

For the 2017 Toy Tractor Weekend, we do have several openings available for toy tractor collectors who are interested in showing off their treasures to the public. If you would like to take part in this event or have questions about it, please call BHHA Administrator Todd DeDecker at 309 927-3889 or email him at
