  1. Mentone Indiana very first June show and swap meet was a success! Ken and I would like to thank everyone for coming out to show their tractors, sell your parts or just enjoy the beautiful weather we had! I can't honestly remember when we've had a show and swap meet that it did not rain! Also want to thank everybody for the continued support in helping the Mentone Indiana garden tractor show and swap meet happen every year.
  2. Jim, this is absolutely for all brands! Love to see your tractors there!
  3. Hi tractor friends. Hope everyone had a good Christmas and are doing well. Ken and I have decided to have the Mentone Garden Tractor Show & Swap meet on a new date this year. As most of you know we've had nothing but bad luck with trying to figure out Mother Nature and have been rained out the last four or more times. This year we're going to have it in collaboration with Mentone Egg Festival. The tractor show and swap meet will be on Friday June 2nd and Saturday June 3rd. Anyone wanting to set up and sell can come set up on Thursday June 1st If desired. As usual there will be a $5 per day selling fee to help cover the costs. Also we would love if we could get people to bring their garden tractors to show. We're hoping to set up an area just for them to be shown off! If anyone has any questions Ken can be reached at 574-607-7694 and I can be reached at 513-319-3640. The Show and Swap Meet will be just north of Mentone Indiana on highway 19 Thanks and hope to see everyone there! note: I apologize the attachment was last year's Egg Festival Because they have not posted this year's yet. Egg Festival - Mentone Chamber of Commerce The Mentone Egg Festival for 2016 will be held June 2nd, 3rd, and 4th... Mark it down on your calendars! The three-day event features entertainment, games, food, a parade in the downtown area, a play area for kids, and a huge car, truck, motorcycle &… MENTONEEGGCITY.COM

  5. As RedRanger said Fri & Sat Anyone wanting to camp can camp on the grounds. There just isn't no power or water available. We do have a porta jon brought in for those needs.
  6. Another great Mentone (wet) Swap Meet. I give up trying to second guess mother nature. I only took these four pictures off the top of Chucks motorhome. Not long after the rain started. Thanks to everyone who made the trip out and it was great chatting with everyone and sorry I missed several people who were there. Ken started this 10 years ago and the fall Mentone Show and Swap Meet will be September 16th and 17th. Hope to see you there! Thanks, Gene

There will be a food vendor on site and porta pots for restroom needs. Also as normal to help cover cost of using the grounds, paying for porta pots and advertisement there will be a $5 selling fee.

  9. MENTONE PICTURES- 2015

    Thanks for posting pictures guys! We had a great turn out for as bad as the weather was. I was side tracked and never took any pictures since I was taking care of the food stuff as well. My food vender dropped out on me about three or so weeks ago and I got my first experience on how much food to buy for get togethers like this. The larger area was a success. We got all the parts in one area and all the shoppers parked in another area. We had about 38 rigs come in to sell parts and a lot of other brands besides just WH as it usually is. I want to thank Scott Mehlberg, Mike Biser, Chuck McColley and of corse my partner Ken Stephens for all the help and advise along the way. The fall Mentone Garden Tractor Show & Swap meet is September 11th and 12th... Mark it on your calendars! And last but not least a big thanks to RedSquare for sponsoring the Mentone spring swap meet! Thanks, Gene Simpson
  10. Mentone Indiana Spring Swap Meet

    48 hours from now the madness will be starting!!! See you all there...
  11. Mentone Indiana Spring Swap Meet

    The is an item Chuck "Wheel-Mule" will be raffling off at the swap meet. He will be selling chances to win this item to help raise money for supporting Mentone Swap Meet expenses. He will be donating all proceeds from the raffle. Thanks for looking.
  12. Happy new year!!! I know this is a little early but just wanted to let everyone know the Mentone Indiana Garden Tractor Swap Meet is April 25 2015. Same great time as before just in a new larger area. The new area for the swap meet (and show & swap in the fall) is just .7ths of a mile north of the original spot right on St Rd 19. If anyone has any questions feel free to give Ken or me a call and we'd be glad to answer any questions.
  13. Mentone Indiana garden tractor show and swap meet. Starting this year we will be charging everyone selling parts a $5 selling fee. The reason for this fee is because the park is $50 a day and two day insurance is $200. We only made $86 in donations at the spring swap meet and that does not even cover the postage for me to mail flyers out. As I see it $5 isn't much and shouldn't scare any sellers off and wont cover all the cost but sure will help Richard and I out covering the rest. If any one has any questions please feel free to contact Richard or me. Thanks.

  15. Mentone Indiana Swap Meet

    I got a few pictures through out the morning but it was an awesome turn out of people and tractor parts (some flower pots too... lol Chuck...). The food was great and the weather was even better. Thanks to everyone who came. The fall show & Swap dates will be posted very soon!
