Newark Showground is a showground in Newark, Nottinghamshire. It makes up 200 acres of the former RAF Winthorpe Airfield which were purchased in 1964 by the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society.

They have a range of shows such as the LAMMA agricultural machinery show which is held in January each year over 2 days. The show is organised by the "Lincolnshire Agricultural Machinery Manufactures Association" and the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society, and started in 1981 as a major showcase for the latest agricultural machinery for the local farms. But the event has grown with visitors from all over the British Isles.

The site is used for one week of every year by New Wine to run their North and East Festival. New Wine have a permanent storage facility on the site where they keep their equipment throughout the rest of the year.

This event is one of the largest Vintage Tractor events in the UK. This event founded in 2002 has grown rapidly. In 2009 the show featured International Harvester as its featured marque and gathered over a hundred examples with several notable ones. These included the First Farmall H tractor built at IH's Doncaster Plant in The UK and the last one built when the factory shut.
