BELMOND — The 27th annual Prairie Homestead Antique Power and Craft Show will be Aug. 19-21 at the Jenison-Meacham Arts Center and Farmstead, 1179 Taylor Ave.

The site, with a restored 1930s farmstead and Center Township schoolhouse, is two miles north and one mile east of Belmond.

Admission is $7 for all three days. Children under 5 are admitted free. Gates open daily at 7 a.m.

Featured this year are John Deere tractors and gas engines, celebrating the longest-produced John Deere tractor, the Model D, which was manufactured from 1923 to 1953.

The craft show takes place in the modern and historic buildings which include a vintage country school, barn, corn crib and the original farmhouse.

Clayton Severson will perform all three days of the Power Show. Severson, who grew up on a farm northeast of Clarion, began pursuing music after graduating from Iowa State University. His career has taken him across the country. The 26-year-old singer-songwriter, who calls the Dakotas home, plays a variety of music, from country two-stepper tunes to self-penned songs reminiscent of the blues and Neil Young.

Friday evening features an antique John Deere tractor pull, followed by the spark show and fireworks.

There will be an open tractor pull Saturday.

Leaning Tree Border Collies will herd sheep, calves and ducks.

There will potato harvesting, a petting zoo, clothesline quilt show, field demonstrations, food and more.
