The annual Steam Threshing Festival is held the first weekend in August. The dates for the next Festival are August 4-6, 2023. Visitors will see very rare steam engines, one-of-a-kind trucks and automobiles, large gas engines, and prairie tractors.
Throughout the weekend, visitors can tour the many museums and historical displays on the grounds. Exhibitors and guests enjoy the live farm demonstrations including grain threshing, log sawing, plowing, ensilage cutting, shingle making, horsepower testing, corn shredding, lumber planning, feed grinding, corn shelling and much, much more.
In 2023, we will host the IH Chapter 5 and will feature the complete line of machinery and equipment related to International Harvester.
We welcome those who exhibit all makes and models of farm equipment. Although each year has a feature focus, we have room for displays of all makes and models. There is no fee to exhibit.
Admission to the Festival is $10 for all three days. Children aged 12 and under are admitted free. There is no admission fee for exhibitors.
