Participate as an Exhibitor

 

The main exhibitor areas at the Old Threshers Reunion are the traction steam engine, gas engine, tractor, horse, and car & truck areas. All of the areas have different criteria for new exhibitors to follow if they wish to display or demonstrate at the annual event.

Traction Steam Engines: Both full-sized and model traction steam engines are exhibited at the Reunion. All traction steam engines (including model engines) will be inspected by our safety committee and must pass all of the inspection requirements to be exhibited at the Old Threshers Reunion. Trucking assistance will be worked out on a per engine basis. If you have any questions, contact the Old Threshers office to be put in contact with the area directors who will personally answer your questions.

Gas Engines: The majority of the gas engines displayed at the Reunion are antique, exposed flywheel gas engines. The engines must be in restored and operable condition and the exhibitor is encouraged to operate the engine during the day. Most gas engine exhibitors simply bring their engines to the Old Threshers Reunion and register at the Gas Engine Headquarters. If you have any questions, contact the Old Threshers office to be put in contact with the area director who will personally answer your questions.

Tractors: All tractors exhibited at the Old Threshers Reunion must be at least 50 years old and should be in operable condition. Each year, a tractor manufacturer is featured. If your tractor was manufactured by the featured company, there is no time restriction on the tractor that year. Most tractor exhibitors simply bring their tractors to the Old Threshers Reunion and register at Tractor Headquarters. If you have any questions, contact the Old Threshers office to be put in contact with the area directors who will personally answer your questions.

Horses: All horse exhibitors must be invited by the area director to exhibit at the Old Threshers Reunion. Call the Old Threshers office for details. If you have any questions, contact the Old Threshers office to be put in contact with the area director who will personally answer your questions.

Cars and Trucks: All cars and trucks exhibited at the Old Threshers Reunion must be at least 50 years old, must be in operable condition and must not be modified, street rod or replica. When special displays are planned, there may be exceptions to the age limit. We expect that vehicles will parade during cavalcade. The majority of cars and trucks are exhibited by the members of the Southeast Iowa Antique Car Club. It is recommended that you contact the Old Threshers office prior to the Reunion to schedule your car or truck to exhibit at our annual event. If you have any questions, contact the Old Threshers office to be put in contact with the area director who will personally answer your questions.
