Vintage Car Shows This Weekend In KC!

At Croft, we know how passionate you are about your vintage cars, trucks, motorcycles, and all things motorized. The end of summer and beginning of fall is the best time of the year to catch some great car shows in the KC area. We did some digging to find the best car shows happening this Saturday so you don’t have to.

Sep. 18-20 – McLouth Threshing Bee: The 58th Annual McLouth Threshing Bee, featuring Tractors of the 1970’s. Admission is totally free all weekend and breakfast is for sale on Saturday and Sunday. You’re permitted to bring coolers as long as you leave glass containers out of them! There are on-site campgrounds (without electrical hookups) if you’re interested in camping out for the weekend, although only 45 minutes away from KC, this also makes a great day trip for the family. In addition to seeing some awesome vintage tractors, other attractions include an antique car show, flea market, mini train rides, an antique rock crusher, and an earth moving demonstration. There’s also a truck and tractor pull at 4PM on Saturday. If you or your family are looking for a motor-lovers paradise, McLouth, KS, is where you should go this weekend!

Sep. 19-20 – Ol’ Marais River Run Annual Car Show: Come check out one of the biggest car shows in the KC area! The Ol’ Marais River Run Car Show is on for its 29th annual in Ottawa, Kansas.
