The Southeast Old Threshers Reunion Is the Heart of the Denton FarmPark. The Threshers Reunion is what started this Family owned park back in 1970. Check out the History of how we got started on our History page.

It is held every year on the week of the 4th of July. When you come to this event it’s like stepping back in history. You see old buildings and equipment that’s all running like it did back in its prime. Our buildings like the Plantation, trampling barn, General store with post office attached in the back, shoe shop, gas station, train station, Church, the radio museum, and a few others are restored and brought in from Jackson Hill and the Gristmill was moved here from Gastonia. The other buildings were built here. You can go inside all the buildings and see what it used to look like and you can even buy an old fashioned coke from the general store.

There are cowboys that ride the train to keep the people ”safe” but a bad group of bandits stop the train and try to steal its money and rob the people, but the cowboys don’t even let them on the train.  The cowboys jump off and try to put a stop to the bandits, but the bandits don’t go down without a fight. There is a “shootout” right there beside the train and the cowboys win and get back on the train to safely get the people back to the station without any other holdups. And you can see this show every Hour on the hour.

After the Train ride you can see the parade of power that happens everyday at 4:00 in the center of the park. The parade of power is for tractors and lawnmowers only. We lead the parade with our Steam Tractors and everyone who exhibits a tractor or lawn mower is allowed to jump right in and show off what they brought to the event. We will announce what the tractor or mower is and the name of who owns is to the crowd as they slowly pass by.

Everyday at certain times we have demonstrations all around the park on how things work. The demonstrations include: The sawmill, Corlis engine, Thrashing, bailing & corn shilling with horsepower, machine shop operation, horses on treadmill, Veneer mill, thrashing with steam, steam shovel & steam crane in pit, shingle mill, wood splitter & rock crusher, border collie herding sheep and more. This event is a great learning experience and fun for the entire family.
