The Will County Threshermen's Association (WCTA) is excited to invite you to their 61st Annual Show, taking place from July 20-23, 2023, at the WCTA Show Grounds, Spiess Farm, in Manhattan, IL.
As a 501(c)(3) organization serving the greater Will County area, WCTA's mission is to share their love and knowledge of all things agriculture, engines, steam engines, tractors, and machinery with the community. And there's no better way to do that than through their Annual Show!
This year's event features Minneapolis-Moline & Single Cylinder Stationary Engines, along with a host of other exciting activities including working steam engines, sawmill, parade of power, tractor and machinery exhibits, fieldwork demonstrations, food and concessions, craft and flea market, antique and garden tractor pulls, kids activities, horse and wagon rides, Frankfort Brass Band, Civil War Living History exhibit, and more! (Please note that fieldwork and tractor pulls are weather permitting.)
Admission is $8 per adult and $4 per child daily, and the show runs from 9AM-5PM daily. Cash only, and there is no ATM on site.
