2009 International Windmillers' Trade Fair

Welcome from the wind-swept prairie state of Kansas!
Windmills are a familiar sight here, evoking thoughts of days gone by and sometimes satisfaction that certain things never change. Either way, windmills have their own graceful energy and fascinating heritage which we are anxious to reveal.
All Windmill enthusiasts are invited and encouraged to join us at the International Windmillers’ Trade Fair on June 3-5, 2009 here in El Dorado, Kansas. We hope our central location and great line-up of events will pump you up about attending and even cause you to gush a little to friends.
(Look for your registration form in the mail early in 2009.)
