The 61st annual Threshermen’s Reunion and Stampede will be held July 23 – 26, 2015, and will highlight the Cockshutt line of farm equipment.
The Manitoba Threshermen’s Reunion and Stampede is Canada’s largest pioneer heritage festival, that attracts over 10,000 visitors each year from across Manitoba, Western Canada and abroad; to the Manitoba Agricultural Museum near Austin, MB. Featuring a working 20-building Homesteaders’ Village, live farming demonstrations with horse, steam and gas power, vintage fashion show, home handicraft displays, heavy horse events, antique car show, live entertainment and a rodeo, this family-friendly show has been entertaining the public for 60 years.
All museum exhibit buildings are open, including 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.
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.
Camping is available at our Three Creeks Campground located on the south end of the museum. Don’t have a camper? No need to stay in a tent or sleep under the open sky – rent a camper from CamperDude RV Rentals. Please visit their website for more information.
