Swap Meet & Flea Market
Each spring, in conjunction with our auction we have our annual swap meet. During our show in August, we also feature a flea market.
Vendors from all over come together at our show to display their treasures and goodies. You’ll find parts for just about anything, tools, hobbies, and crafts.
We have a number of steam engines on display for you to see! You’ll catch a glimpse of them in the daily parade, or belted up to one of our displays such as the rock crusher, a sawmill or separator. If the weather cooperates, we’ll have a spark show on Friday and Saturday night. Truly a sight to see!
From garden tractors to prairie tractors, we have a large assortment of tractors to see! We have all of the big names on display such as John Deere, Farmall, Minneapolis and some of the more rare tractors at times as well!
There is a large amount of stationary or wheeled gas engines on display at our show to enjow as well. From the large stationary engines all the way down to 1hp portable engines, chainsaw carving displays and more, we have something for everyones interest. Be sure to check out our Fuller & Johnson building for some great exhibits too.
There are a number of sawmills on display at our grounds. We have a large bandsaw mill, 2 full size mills and often portable mills as well. Daily demonstrations and narration on how sawmills were used back in the day are given!
Let’s not forget some of the important aspects of our history outside of just gas and steam! We have many other activites on our showgrounds such as metal working in our blacksmith shop, ladies crafts and more. Be sure to check out all of our buildings for more exhibits.
Parades & Vintage Vehicles
Our steam and gas tractors aren’t the only things on wheels at our grounds. Don’t forget to stop by our vintage gas station for a look at a variety of classic cars, from hot rods, massive work trucks, and restored Model T cars.
