Cross Plains Area Chamber of Commerce: 28th annual Hill and Valley Antique Auto and Americana Show

CONTACTS: Don Chandler (798-3040)

Cross Plains, WI— The Village of Cross Plains is busy preparing for the 28th Annual Hill and Valley Antique Auto and Americana Show which will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2011, 6:45am – 4:30pm at Baer Park. This event is sponsored by the Wisconsin Capital Model T Ford Club.

This unique event presents something of interest to the entire family, oldest to youngest. An important part of the show is the Hill & Valley Tour. The tour is about 22 miles, an hour drive through our many hills & valleys.

The traditional pancake breakfast will be served from 6:45 to 10:15 am.

The day is truly a celebration of America’s heritage and history represented through historic displays and demonstrations of crafts and skills that include blacksmithing, wagon wheel making, quilting, spinning, lace making, sauerkraut making and woodcarving.

Come to check out the antique and classic cars and trucks, steam and gas engines and tractors, horse drawn vehicles and antique fire engines. Don’t miss the corn-on–the-cob at the antique steam engine. Guests will be entertained by the live music of returning men’s trio, “The Good Times”.

One of the newer additions to the show is a live working telegraphy setup along with railroad memorabilia. Telegraphs were used in railroad depots for decades and are now a thing of the past.

Exhibit space is available for the Arts & Crafts Show—the application deadline is 09/01/11. Booth Fee is $20. All artists and craftsmen welcome.

This event is free to the public. Registration for those bringing a car for display is $8. We encourage you to come out and spend a most pleasant day.
