The 29th annual Nowthen Threshing Show , sponsored by the Now-then Historical Power Association, was held August 20, 21, and 22, 1999 at Nowthen, Minnesota. Our 1999 show featured the Fordson and the Briggs & Stratton engine.

The club announced another great year, with attendance reaching over 4,000. Club members along with additional exhibitors hosted an experience for all attending. Wherever you went on the 54-acre show grounds, you experienced something replicating the decades of 1890-1930.

The annual show hosts many scheduled events as well as many continually running demonstrations. Scheduled events included a daily parade of power at 2:00 p.m. Friday evening's attraction was an antique tractor pull with 84 hooks, antique and classic classes with eleven various weight classes.

Each morning a pancake breakfast was available to help us start the day. Sunday morning church services provided worship, music and fellowship. On Sunday afternoon, the kids enjoyed a Kiddie Tractor Pull with 95 entries. There was also live music and square dancing.

Continually running demonstrations included farming demonstrations of old time threshing, plowing with oxen from the Oliver H. Kelley Farm of the Minnesota Historical Society, corn shelling, and grinding feed.
