EDIT....Johnson County was last weekend.

Martinsville, IN at the fairgrounds there is the machinery/tractor /garden tractor show. It goes Saturday and Sunday with an auction on Sunday. I'm hoping to go just may not take any machines.

Boonville Indiana (near Evansville) July 22, 23, & 24, 2016 (can't locate their web site right now)

 

Elnora IN (north of Washington IN right on I-69) September 8-11, 2016 http://www.wrvaa.org/

 

I know these are not that close to Indy, but thought you might be interested.

 

Check these 2 shows out on the WWW

I've been the Sysco driver down in those parts for the last few months. Running Greene, Davies, Knox, and Martin county on Mondays. Taking the time to talk with the locals. Sounds like it may be worth the trip.

Don't forget the huge and I do mean huge Portland Indiana show and swap meet in mid August.  You need a GT for a butt buggie as its a huge show and the weather is usually very hot and humid.  My wife got sick from the heat the first time we went without something to ride around on.  Tipton has a nice show with threshing and field plowing, August 11th-14th.  Kokomo has one at the county fairgrounds as well put on by the wildcat creek tractor club.  Power from the past in Winamac is in mid July and is a nice show in a mostly shady city park and is a fairly big show.    Walton has a show in 2 weeks on the 1st of July as well.   Mike

In a nutshell, just about every county in IN has a show somewhere. Just pic your region.

There's actually a book put out every year with all the shows listed. I'm getting on the mailing list. I let you know more info as I find out. Most these shows are still somewhat "old times", most are not online anywhere.

Hoosier Flywheelers in Peru on June 23-25, Walton, IN July 1-4, Winchester, IN July 15-19, Tipton, IN Aug 11-14. Tipton would be the closest, other shows are a reasonable distance from Indy.

Thanks for all the info!   I am going to try and make the Portland Show.  Since my wife used to be a counselor there, and we got married there ...... maybe I can get her to tag along on this one!
