Our show depends on exhibitors, they make-up the greater portion of our show. We have yet to not find room for a worthy exhibit. The exhibit does not have to be fully restored and looking ‘show-room’ new, but must be a worthy exhibit. No advance notice or registration is required.
Exhibitors are not charged admission. Exhibitors and club members camping on the showgrounds will be charged a $10 maintenance fee. All worthy exhibits are allowed two adult passes plus any kids 15 & under for the show. Additional adults may be charged admission. Exhibitors are allowed admission to the show grounds any time after eight a.m. on Tuesday the week of the show. The club has a holding area for exhibitors and vendors, and an area for campers that will be open Sunday prior to the show. The camping area across the road from the show grounds is also open the Sunday before the show. All exhibitors must adhere to the all camping rules.
Exhibitors with tractors are expected to check-in at the Tractor Shack where you will be assigned a parking spot for your tractor. You will then unload your tractor there and then proceed to find a spot in the general camping area. Utility trailers are expected to be parked in the trailer holding area across the road from the East Gate, unless they are a necessary part of your camping facilities. Drivers under 16 years of age will be required to receive a waiver to be able to operate a tractor. Farm Tractors must be 1976 and older. Garden tractor and Antique cars and trucks must be 1970 and older.
