The Price County Antique Association, Ltd. (PCAA) will be holding its annual Antiques and Tractor Show at the Price County Fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday July 17-18, 2021 starting at 9 a.m. daily. PCAA members have been working hard in 2020 and this spring to prepare for Expo 2021.
People can once again see the tractors, machines, tools and antiques that defined life in Price County in the past. Local residents used much of the machinery and antiques on display in the Antique 1 and Antique 2 buildings. Perhaps your family members or neighbors donated some of the items that are in the buildings.
The weekend will be filled with exhibits, demonstrations and vendors in buildings and outdoors. The “Phillips – Our Town” diorama, produced by English-speaking students of Phillips High School for two consecutive years under the tutelage of teacher Eva Reilly, will be part of the presentations. Demonstrations will include a wood processor, shingle mill, and the making of sinkers and jump ropes which can be purchased. Anyone wishing to exhibit their antique collections or demonstrate their craftsmanship can do so for free. Those who wish to sell items can do so for a fee of $ 10 per space. Vendors, demonstrators and exhibitors should call Gloria at 715-339-2798 to reserve spaces. You can bring your own tables and tents.
Everyone is invited to exhibit their old tractors, cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles, engines or machinery outdoors. For more information, call Steve at 715-339-3652.
On Saturday July 17 at 1 p.m., it’s the old tractor pull. Register and weigh your 1963 and older tractors in the morning. An eliminator will be used with a fee of $ 10.00 per draw. Trophies will be awarded to the winners. Get your tractors out of your fields and barns and have a fun afternoon. Call Cheryl at 715-339-6981 for any inquiries.
A motor show will be held on Sunday July 18 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. $ 10.00 is the entry fee and trophies will be awarded. Contact Marv at 262-210-2676. Polish your wheels and have fun showing them off. At the same time there will be music by Wylde Tymes DJ Russ Lasee.
Other events on both days are the tractor parade, a bake sale and raffles. Guess the “mystery” item for a chance to win $ 10.00. Marie’s on Fayette will provide food and drink during the weekend. Specifically for kids, there’s a cookie-eating contest, Jim Polacek’s Orange Blossom Special kids’ ride and the Franson family’s Phillips Children’s Museum and games.
