Free Exhibitor Registration

If you would like to display items for exhibit during the weekend, please note that there is no charge for this.  However, you must register your exhibit(s)!  There are three ways to do this.  First, simply fill out the Online Registration Form and click “Submit”.  Second, print a hard copy of the Registration Form and mail the completed form to A.C. Threshermen, P.O. Box 333, Albert City, IA, 50510.  Third, register at the show.

TO ENCOURAGE PRE-REGISTRATION:  All who register their exhibits online or return a hard copy to the Threshermen Office before August 1, 2024 will receive a free coupon in their Pre-registration Packet for one cup of Threshermen’s homemade ice cream.

Membership rates are  $25 for a single and $35 for a couple. This is a great value if you plan to attend the show all three days! Members are also invited to the annual meeting the first Saturday in December where a delicious catered meal is served before the business meeting.  You'll also receive our yearly MAILING and SHOW POSTER each June, as well as our semi-annual newsletter in the SPRING and FALL to keep you informed on what we're up to.

You must pay for every night your camper is parked at the campsite. If you have a generator, you will need to park along the north fence. Generators must be off by 10 p.m. - this will be strictly enforced. If you have a medical reason that requires you to keep your generator/inverter running, we ask you to park towards the east of the campgrounds.

**Our electrical campsites are full for the 2024 show. If you'd like to be on our waiting list in case of a cancellation, please email us at ** There are also a limited amount of electrical campsites available. Camping at these sites is available beginning on Saturday, August 3, 2024 until Monday, August 12, 2024. It is a $200 flat fee to camp at the electrical sites (no matter how many of these nights you stay). In  order to reserve one of these spots, you must fill out the Electrical Camping Registration Form and pay the $200 fee. Reservations are not confirmed until the Threshermen Office receives the registration form and the $200. Once the spots are filled, we will start a waiting list. If your payment is not received by August 1, 2024, your campsite will be given to someone on the waiting list.
