As the Chairman of the Organizing Committee for the 2013 World Plowing Championships hosted by the Canadian Plowing Organization and Olds College I would like to thank you for visiting our web site.

I want to point out that our web site provides an up-to-date visitors guide, event schedule, and venue layout.

General admission at the gate is $10 per person per day for adults and $5 per person per day for seniors and youth (4-17).

As you may be aware, we last hosted the World Championship at Olds College back in 1986. We look forward to welcoming you back to Canada, the great Province of Alberta and to our rural community of Olds and our 2000 acre campus of Olds College.

Our dedicated Organizing Committee and staff have worked very hard over the past three years to bring you this great event.

Some features include:

  • Participation from 30 countries and 60 competitors
  • Over 400 registered international guests

And much, more!!!


Over the next few weeks we will continue to update our site with new information to make your visit in 2013 as enjoyable as possible. Please feel free to contact our General Manager, Kerry Moynihan at 403-559-6477 or  kmoynihan@oldscollege.ca should you have any questions.

We will be producing a special limited edition championship handbook that will be available for purchase. This souvenir handbook includes a special section that profiles 60 years of international plowing. In addition, a selection of 2013 World Plowing merchandise will be available for purchase on site.

2013 will be one complete century since the founder and first President W.J. Elliott opened the doors of the Olds School of Agriculture and Home Economics, and what a storied century it has been! We are pleased that Olds College has agreed to host these Championships as an integral component to their 100th Anniversary celebration!
