The 60th annual Threshermen’s Reunion and Stampede will be held July 24 – 27, 2014.
The 60th annual Threshermen’s Reunion offers something for everyone. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of WWI and the 75th anniversary of the start of WWII, the 2014 feature attraction will be Manitoba’s military heritage. The display will examine how Canada’s armed conflicts have impacted Manitoba’s people and economy. We will also be celebrating 60 years of the Manitoba Threshermen’s Reunion and Stampede!
All museum exhibit buildings are open, including 20 in the Homesteaders Village. A free grandstand show each afternoon features a parade of vintage farm equipment and contests such as a stooking and sheaf tying demo, and a threshing competition between gas and steam driven threshing machines. There is a rodeo each evening including Sunday, and the evening ends with free dance on an open air dance floor. Our live entertainment line up is:
Thursday Evening: The Rock Ridge Pickers
Friday Afternoon: Harvey Allen Band
Friday Evening: Dagnabbit
Saturday Afternoon: Trevor Johnson
Saturday Evening: Last On the Road
Sunday Afternoon: Happy Daze
Sunday Evening: DJ Cory Christison
There will also be a petting zoo and a barrel train for kids to ride on.
There are several food booths on the Museum grounds featuring fast foods and full meals. Souvenirs of the museum are available in several locations. Handicap parking and shuttles are available. A shuttle service operates throughout the day and evening in the parking lot and on the museum grounds.
