This is how the “Club” would like to see parking in our lots:
There are mowed strips in the East and West lots to keep it orderly. We have had problems in previous years with not parking in this fashion. State law dictates how much room is needed for vehicle traffic entering and leaving our lots. Maximizing space is easier if this policy is followed.
Please respect this policy.
The alternative is you could have your vehicle towed if not parked correctly.
Any and all vendor/advertisers must adhere to the advertising rules, set by the Almelund Threshing Show advertising committee. See the advertising policy (pdf).
Exhibits are defined as vintage machinery and displays related to our rural heritage. See the exhibitor policy (pdf).
