5 days leading up to and ending Labor Day
Midwest Old Threshers Reunion is a must-do Iowa classic for the whole family! The reunion started in 1950 and has taken place every Labor Day weekend since. Tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world flood the Mount Pleasant area for a week long celebration which began as a tribute to steam engines and antique agricultural equipment, and has grown to a multi-faceted history and entertainment institution.
Every night of reunion week features two world-class events- in the early evening the Theatre Museum puts on an old “Toby and Susie” Toby Tolliver play from the Schaffner Players, followed by a major musical act in the pavilion. Acts such as Minnie Pearl, Leroy Van Dyke, Tammy Wynette, George Strait, Johnny Cash & June Carter, Kenny Rogers, Brad Paisley, Terri Clark, Willie Nelson and LeAnn Rimes have all performed on the Big Stage.
