Bluegrass & Chili Fest in Wagoner is quickly approaching. Now is the time for preparing your display equipment. The committee would like the club to make a parade of tractors past the retirement community. They are providing Plaques for tractors attending the event. We can start moving tractors in at 11:00 AM Friday September 6th. We will be able to move tractors after 6:00 PM September 7th. 

Please stay tuned and check back often for additional information pertaining to unloading and loading area for all equipment.


We are desperately needing members to complete the survey form mailed in April. The city of Wagoner is in need of this information to help facilitate the space requirements for the Bluegrass Chili Fest. Even if you are not sure of your plans at this time please make your best guess. Send in the card or call one of our club officers or board members with your information. Please do this.  If we miss you here is the information we need. How many tractors of stationary engines can you commit to the Bluegrass Chili Fest for September 6th and 7th.

  The Oklahoma Antique Tractor Association, Inc. (OATA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and education of America's past.


  The OATA was officially organized in February of 1992 with 26 members and was called the "Oklahoma Green and Yellow Two Cylinder Club", catering to people with interests in antique John Deere Tractors.


  As the club grew slowly through the years and with a majority of it's members owning or at least with interests in various other makes of tractors, the membership voted in n1996 to change the name of the club to "Oklahoma Antique Tractor Association, Inc.


  OATA was incorporated into the state of Oklahoma in 1997 and was granted a 501c3 non-profit tax exempt tax status in 1998.


  OATA joined the National "Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association" in 2000 and became Branch #116.  Our membership has grown to over 140 members (families , not individuals).


  Membership meetings are generally held on the second Saturday of each even numbered month.  Meeting places vary , depending on club activities, events, etc.
