58th Annual Central North Dakota Steam Threshers Reunion takes you back to the history of agriculture in North Dakota and the surrounding region and is held in the steam engine capitol of North Dakota. The theme for the 2016 show is Allis Chalmers. A daily parade of steam engines and other antique and Allis Chalmers equipment starts at 2 p.m. each day. There are threshing demonstrations daily, as well as steam, gas and horse plowing, wood sawing and planing, blacksmithing and rope making. A kids' pedal pull is held Saturday morning as well as a regular tractor pull Saturday afternoon. Saturday and Sunday offer afternoon music, as well as an old-time dance Friday night and a talent show Saturday night. The craft show and flea market are popular attractions as are the food vendors. You can find a hearty thresher's breakfast at the antique cook car. The Eddy County 4-H clubs serve a roast beef dinner Saturday and Sunday. Pioneer Village is comprised of a church, school house, hall, post office, and women's auxiliary building which are decked out as they were originally used. 

The grounds and building are now handicapped accessible. Camping is available. Take a trip back in time in North Dakota history by attending this show.
