Feel the ground shake with the roar of antique power!


Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11; from 10 am to 4 pm

Experience the roots of Wisconsin’s agricultural past during two action-filled days of antique farming re-creations, hands-on demonstrations, farmhand contests, food, and much more!

The Mid-Lakes Thresheree is an interactive outdoor event which educates, entertains and connects people of all ages to Wisconsin rural life experiences. Whether it’s stretching fresh mozzarella in the Cheese Factory, seeing antique farm machines at work, or an exciting stroll through 25 different interactive historic structures, there’s always something exciting happening at our Thresheree. It’s home to endless discoveries about history, science, art, and nature, and the event weekend is brimming with activities you won’t want to miss!
