The Lake Region Pioneer Thresherman's Show is held annually in Dalton, MN with entertainment for the whole family!

2024 featured brand: Allis Chalmers

Steam Engines

The Lake Region Threshers Show features one of the country's finest collections of steam traction engines. Many of these steam engines join a "Parade of Giants" through the grounds at 1:00PM each day of the show.

Historic displays

There are many historic buildings on the grounds, filled with antique displays of all types, such as military, music, printing, and more. Many of the buildings are from the period of the settlers and include log houses, a one-room schoolhouse, and a church among others.

Free Train Rides

Take a ride on a World War I era French steam locomotive.
NOTE: We are very sad to say the train will not be running this year. We have started the process of rebuilding it but it will be very costly and time-consuming. We do have great hopes that it will be running for 2024s show.
