New Name & Location
Central Wisconsin Military Show
(Formerly "Iola Vintage Military & Gun Show")


After 25 years, the Iola Vintage Military & Gun Show, founded under the influence of Chet Kruse of Iola, is relocating to new event grounds in Marathon County under a new name. Now named the Central Wisconsin Military Show, this event will take place on the newly-developed event grounds alongside Wisconsin’s Largest Auto Museum “Motorama”, just off Hwy 52 in Marathon County’s North East Corner. Mark your calendars ­– you won’t want to miss this annual event scheduled for August 12, 2017.

The Iola Military Show has grown to “The Midwest’s Premiere and Largest Military Vehicle Show and Swap Meet” and the event organizers are dedicated to continually improving the experience for all who attend.

The Central Wisconsin Military Show will feature:

  • Military Vehicles
  • Military Equipment
  • Professional Vehicle Exhibits
  • Living History Encampments
  • Swap Meet
  • Show Vehicle Trophies
  • Special Awards
  • Pin-Up Girl Contest
  • Cash Prizes
  • Live Music
  • Food Vendors
  • On-Site Camping

Registration forms will be available by early May and will be sent to last year’s participants, as well as made available here on this page. For upcoming news and announcements check back here or follow along on Facebook at www.facebook.com/Motorama.Auto.Museum.
