Atwater Threshing Days 2021
Atwater Threshing Days was held Sept. 11 and 12 in Atwater.
ATWATER — The Atwater Threshing Days returned in 2021 after canceling its 2020 event, with music, activities, parades and plenty of people in attendance Saturday and Sunday at the Atwater Threshing Grounds, 1100 Kandi-Meeker Road, just east of the city of Atwater.
Each day there was a long list of activities, demonstrations, music and, of course, threshing.
Every year a specific brand of tractors is showcased at Threshing Days. This year's focus was Minneapolis-Moline. Formed in 1929 and based in Hopkins, the business was a merger of three companies — Moline Plow Company Inc., Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company, and Minneapolis Steel and Machinery Company. The company was purchased in 1963 by White Motor Company.
