Warning – Inherent Risks of Agritourism
Under Minnesota law, a provider of agritourism activities is not liable for injury, damage, or death of a participant resulting from an inherent risk of agritourism. Inherent risks include: natural hazards and conditions of land, water, and vegetation; behavior of wild, domestic, and farm animals; ordinary dangers of farm, ranch, processing, and other machinery, equipment, and structures; and, other dangers or conditions integral to an agritourism activity. Participants assume the inherent risks of agritourism activities. Minnesota Statute 604A.40 (2016)
To protect all spectators and visitors to the Almelund Threshing Show, we must ask that everyone follow our vehicle policies closely. See the vehicle policy: Vehicle Movement Policy(PDF)
If you are driving your vehicle on the grounds unregistered, you will be asked to immediately register it in the information bldg. or asked to park it and not use it during the show. The only person to be driving is the registered drivers with proof of insurance.. (no, friends, children, grandchildren etc.)
Doug’s Golf Cars will be on-site for rentals: Call 612 964 4653 for further info.
State law dictates how much room is needed for vehicle traffic entering and leaving our lots. There are mowed strips in the East and West parking lots to help keep parking orderly. Overflow parking and parking for trailers and trucks is available on south side of Highway 95. Maximizing space is easier if this policy is followed. The alternative is to 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).
Flea Market Policies
The Almelund Threshing Company has one of largest flea markets in the area. We work hard to accommodate the vendors that pay for a vending spot by making sure that they will have a fair chance to display and sell their items. Interested vendors can see the flea market policy (pdf).
Almelund Threshing Company (ATC) has adopted a camping policy for spectators and exhibitors who wish to camp on ATC property during the annual threshing show. Camping is $10/night from the time you mark off or put your camping unit on the grounds. For more information, see: Camping Policy
Parking areas are off limits to camping! Violators will be asked to move to an open site or leave.
Tractor Pull Rules
Anyone interested in participating in any of the Almelund Threshing Show’s tractor pulls must be aware of all regulations and rules. Policies for the tractor pulls can see the tractor pull rules (pdf).
Contact 911 for all emergency assistance required on our show grounds. Almost all of the volunteer firemen staffing the food booths are trained Emergency First Responders. First aid kits are available at the Information Center, Sawmill, and Tractor Pull area. Deputies from the Chisago County Sheriff’s department are on site.
