Welcome to the Nowthen Threshing Show

NHPA LogoWelcome to the Nowthen Historical Power Association's website featuring the Nowthen Threshing Show. On this site you will find information on the Nowthen Threshing Show as well as information on our other projects and events.

In existence for 49 years, the Nowthen Threshing Show attracts thousands of visitors every year thanks to the unique exhibits, demonstrations, and the variety of food and entertainment. The Nowthen Threshing Show gathers hundreds of rare and historic antique tractors, small engines, steam engines, trucks, cars, implements and tools in one place for a fun-packed three day event geared towards “Bringing the Past to the Present” for people of all ages.

Hello Everyone,

On the evening of June 10th the board of directors unanimously voted to cancel the 2020 Nowthen Threshing Show. This step is not taken lightly, and the board has been working each of the last three months on evaluating options and hoping for the best.  The safety of our members and guests is our number one concern. The board also needs to ensure the fiscal viability of the organization.  Due to the uncertainty involved with the Pandemic of the Novel Coronavirus we simply can’t risk having a show this year. We understand that this is disappointing to many and we are disappointed as well. We will continue to evaluate conditions to see if our fall events can take place.  For now, all events planned on the grounds through the end of August are cancelled. Our features will be bumped a year, so we hope you will join us for our 50th Annual Nowthen Threshing Show on August 20-22, 2021.
