The 46th annual Rock River Thresheree, the largest and oldest antique tractor and steam engine show in Wisconsin, will be held on Labor Day weekend, Friday Aug. 30th thru Monday Sept. 2nd 2002. Allis-Chalmers tractors and equipment will be featured . This four day event is located midway between Janesville and Edgerton WI at the junction of Hwy 51 and Cty Tk M.
The showgrounds open at 8:00AM each day, with breakfast available on the grounds. Most activities run until 5:00PM. Nightime entertainment is provided Saturday and Sunday evenings.
Daily demonstrations include grain threshing (all day) and plowing (morning and afternoon) with both steam and gas powered tractors. One of the favorite demonstrations is our pile driver(all day). This is one of the last known steam operated drivers still in operation, driving 18" diameter logs straight into the ground. Also in operation in a steam powered locomotive. Originally built as a narrow gauge German switch engine, it now gives rides around the 1 ½ mile track that circles the park(all day).
An early 1900’s Blacksmith shop shows off the skills of some of the best blacksmiths left in the state all day long. A steam powered sawmill is in operation through out the day, turning logs into lumber. You can also see a shingle mill cut cedar shingles.
The Museun of industry and Agriculture houses a collection of large stationary engines that run during the day. We also have a large collection of Fairbanks-Morse diesel engines. The building is also home to our steam calliope.
There is an antique car and truck show. We have numerous hand build working scale models on display.
Approximately 500 tractors of every size and shape are shown by the many people who exhibit each year. At 2:00PM the daily highlight is our "Parade of Power". The steam engines, tractors, equipment and antique farm machinery parade though our natural amphitheater.
We feature one of the largest flea markets in southern Wi. Many different crafts and antiques are available to you. You can take home some fresh ground corn meal and buck wheat. Food stands that will suit everyone’s tastebuds are located around the park.
Church services are held Sunday morning. There is ample free parking with shuttle service provided to take you to the center of activities. Tickets are sold at the Cty Tk M entrance. Cost of tickets are $5.00 for adults and $1.00 for children 6-12. Under 6 is free
Hope to see you there!
