The International Agri-Center announced that the Sons of the San Joaquin will perform at the 20th annual California Antique Farm Equipment Show (CAFES) held April 20-22, 2012 in Tulare, Calif. Tickets for the evening may be purchased online at www.AntiqueFarmShow.org for $30 and include a barbecued steak dinner.
The Western harmony of the Sons of the San Joaquin is a rich, burnished vocal blend which has carried the Hannah family from local church and community gatherings to Switzerland, Japan and the Arab peninsula. The group's dedication to Western heritage has its origin in their deep attachment to the classic sounds of The Sons of the Pioneers-a trio which included Roy Rogers. The Sons of the San Joaquin's sound first took shape when the family migrated to California's Central Valley from Missouri during the Depression.
The 20th annual California Antique Farm Equipment Show will showcase the agriculture industry's heritage. The show features 900 exhibitors from throughout California and the United States who make the trek to Tulare to display their antique tractors, engines and other antique farm equipment.
CAFES is one of California's largest gatherings of antique farm equipment. The show features an antique equipment parade; antique tractor pull; children's activities; arts and crafts pavilion; swap meet; annual rib cook-off and entertainment for all ages.
General admission to the antique show is $8 a day (children 12 and under are free). Gates open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit www.AntiqueFarmShow.org or call 800-999-9186.
