Children love the Almelund Threshing Festival! In addition to seeing big steam threshing machines and lots and lots of tractors, kids can enjoy a newly redone playground with sandbox, ring toss game, the “Pedal Tractor Pull” (Sat. only), and the “Sawdust Pit Coin Toss” (Sun. only)

Log Buildings

See the original Chisago County log buildings –  a family home, a duplex, a dairy barn and a smoke house – which were moved to the Almelund Threshing Show grounds in order to honor their history. Children and adults alike will delight in this visit to the 1800s.
