Family-Friendly Farm Show to Include Threshing Demonstrations, Live Music, Train Rides, and a Tribute to Veterans
Denton, NC – The 46th Annual Southeast Old Threshers’ Reunion, the largest steam, gas-engine and antique farm show in the Southeastern U.S., will take place July 1-5 at Denton FarmPark. Hundreds of antique tractors, cars and engines will be on display daily. This year’s theme is Farm Toy Frenzy, featuring the toy collection of Rick Murray.
The festival began as a celebration of threshing, the process of separating edible grain from the inedible chaff that surrounds it. Centuries ago, it was done by hand, a very laborious process referred to in the Bible. Several different horse-powered threshing methods followed until steam- and gas-powered machines – and finally, the automated combine – were invented. All methods will be demonstrated at various times throughout each day of the Reunion.
