Wheat farmers cut the crop at Vintage Harvest in 2014. This year's event marks the first since the COVID-19 pandemic.

DAVENPORT-The Lincoln County Fair and Rodeo isn't the only event in the area this weekend. For the first time since 2019, Vintage Harvest returns to the Red Barn owned by Crayton Guhlke just west of Oehlwein Road for a showcase of old harvesters and combines.

The event, which includes a harvesting of the wheat fields with old-time combines that historically have come from around the world, starts around 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 27 and runs all day.

Co-organizer Taunya Scharff said about 25 combines are expected Saturday.

"They'll run all day until about 4:30 (p.m.)," Scharff said.

Farmers will cut wheat all morning until a short break at lunch presented by FFA. Sonnenburg's Harvest Dinner is at 5:30 p.m.

The Lincoln County Historical Society is running this year's event sponsored by Northwest Farm Credit Services, HighLine Grain Growers and Nutrien Ag Solutions.

Admission to Vintage Harvest is free, but dinner is $30.

This year's event will include a car show for the first time.

Vintage Harvest was started by Guhlke and Gene Stuckle in 2000. The event is at 40801 Highway 2 East in Davenport.
