From its humble beginnings in 1976, our annual Labor Day Weekend show has grown into one of the best events in the region. Exhibitors come from near and far, bringing an ever-changing display of tractors, gas engines and vintage farm equipment.

This year we’re featuring Hart-Parr, Oliver and Minneapolis Moline equipment.
During the show there are threshing and hay baling demonstrations on the Activities Field. Rock crusher, drag saw, shingle mill and steam-powered saw mill demonstrations are held in Antique Village. The Tractor Parade starts at 1 PM and the Engine Crank-Up starts at 2 PM.
We’re more than just a tractor show. Your gate fee also gets you access to the following:
Agricultural Museum: Tour an eclectic collection of antiques and artifacts.
Antique Village: A variety of shops and working displays offer insight into the past, with an emphasis on regional history. Local artisans demonstrate traditional handicrafts and many of their creations are available for purchase.
Flea Market: Dozens of vendors offer a wide variety of items for sale.
Knife and Gun Show: Browse a high quality selection of firearms and military memorabilia.
While we hope that you enjoy our show, our purpose is not simply to entertain you. As part of our efforts to preserve our past heritage, we strive to educate current generations about the machinery our forefathers used. While attending our show, if there is anything you don’t understand about the exhibits, please ask. Club members, exhibitors and artisans are happy to answer your questions.
