cp_tractor_pull_2014Cal Poly Open House will kick-off at Downtown SLO Farmers’ Market on Thursday, April 14th with family fun for everyone! On Nipomo and Higuera streets Cal Poly Truck and Tractor Pull will be on hand. This program has been at Cal Poly since April 1972. It’s the largest event at Open House drawing nearly 4,000 spectators and over 50 competitors from the Western United States. The event is run by the Cal Poly Tractor Pull Club and proceeds from the event bolster a scholarship endowment that goes to hard-working students of the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences. You’ll be able to “hear the engines” roar firsthand at the Market. Club members will be selling tickets to the Open House Truck and Tractor Pull event taking place Saturday, April 16th.  The event will be held on the Cal Poly campus across from the Crops Unit.

In addition to the Truck and Tractor Pull calpoly_clubdisplay at The Market, an Open House “Club Preview” will take place on the north side of Broad Street off Higuera Street. The street will be lined with various Cal Poly club displays and exhibits.  Also, on Chorro and Higuera streets Cal Poly Sports Club Teams will be in attendance handing out information about their various club sports. Exhibits and demonstrations will provide an opportunity for market goers to interact with the sports teams.
