Western Illinois Threshers Show
Aug. 7-9, 2020, Hamilton
Take a step back in time and experience rural life as it used to be at an annual special event organized by the Western Illinois Threshers. The three-day show near Hamilton features the largest and most complete line of antique tractors, cars, trucks and gas engines in western Illinois. Visitors can see a number of demonstrations, from tractor plowing to steam power threshing, corn shelling, blacksmithing and much more. Old buildings on the showgrounds include log cabins, a blacksmith shop, general store and an old windmill. Camping at the show is allowed on a first come, first served basis. Parking is free, with $5 admission for ages 12 and over, which is good for all three days.
