2018 NTA Reunion To Feature Leader Steam Engines, Prairie Tractors And Silver King

The National Threshers Association will hold its 74th reunion Thursday through Sunday, June 21-24, 2018, at the Fulton County Fairgrounds in Wauseon, Ohio. Leader steam engines, prairie tractors, Silver King tractors and Lawson gas engines will be featured at this year's show.

The oldest event of its kind, and among the largest, the show shines a spotlight on antique steam and gas engines that paved the way for modern gas and diesel powered equipment. From agricultural to industrial to personal use, the event relives this bygone era with a variety of historic demonstrations.

In addition to the featured equipment, a variety of other restored engines test their power on full size and ½ scale sawmills, grain threshers, double incline, prony brake, balance apparatus, Baker fans, power eater and weight transfer sled. Equipment will also take to the surrounding fields for plowing demonstrations (weather permitting).

The Fulton County Fairgrounds is located on State Route 108 just north of Ohio Turnpike exit 34.
