Popular steam threshers reunion canceled due to COVID-19


A popular Minnesota show has been canceled due to COVID-19.

The Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion, held annually in Rollag, Minn., has been canceled for 2020. A statement on the reunion’s website says the event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“With social distancing, face masks and the protocols for sanitizing, the show is not possible,” the statement read. “The safety and health of our entire community, volunteers, members, exhibitors and guests is our first priority and is always on the top of our minds when making our decisions.”

The reunion was scheduled for Labor Day weekend, and had been held every year since 1954.
