The 2017 Albert City Threshermen & Collectors Show is four days this year, running Thursday, Aug. 10 through Sunday, Aug. 13. New this year, visitors will be able to learn about the life of early pioneers through seminars, demonstrations and hands-on experiences that will take them back to the early 1900s.

Fourteen special activities will rotate during the day starting at 9 a.m. These activities will be held on Thursday only, and many will offer a chance for visitors to try the activity and visit with the demonstrators.
