Lincoln Electric Rally of the Tall Pines, Bancroft Ontario

November 19-20, 2021

The Lincoln Electric Rally of the Tall Pines, Bancroft, ON is coming! We are proud to return to the hospitality of Bancroft for the 50th running (Take Two!) of this historic event. We welcome back our Title Sponsor, Lincoln Electric, and event sponsor, Pirelli.

This is a closed event. No spectators allowed.
By agreement with our hosts, the Town of Bancroft, there are no spectators allowed at the rally this year. The organisers ask that you do not jeopardise the future of the rally by attending.

Changes this year are due to the health crisis - no spectator areas, no spectators allowed at HQ, the VIP program is on hold, and there will not be a banquet for competitors or volunteers.

With a highly experienced core committee at the helm, Rally of the Tall Pines is one of the best run rallies in North America. But it wouldn't happen without the lifeblood of the rally, the more than 200 volunteers who come out and make it all appear seamless. Join us as a volunteer and get up close to the action.


Our returning sponsors help make this happen. A huge thanks to Lincoln Electric, back for a fourth year, as well as, Pirelli, a major sponsor of the rally, committing for 5 years.

Our local sponsors deserve our thanks and our support.
