The “Get Together” has become Maple Lake’s largest event of the year and one of the most unique “car shows” in the state and perhaps the country. It all takes place on the third Saturday of August in downtown Maple Lake.
There are no plaques or trophies… We’re all about seeing something you don’t see every day… Other car shows focus on awards… Are crew always jokes…”if you want a trophy you’ll need to bring your own!” The Gear-Head Get Together philosophy is… if you love it, bring it and show it off! In addition to the oddball items, there are plenty of shiny hot rods and collector cars too… We love them all!
In addition to hundreds of vehicles taking over downtown Maple Lake there is an ever growing Gear-Head swap meet. Only gear-head items are sold at the swap meet… You will never see vendor spaces selling sunglasses, compression socks or Tupperware (unless the Tupperware is filled with nuts and bolts.)
Over the years the event has grown larger and larger… it now has Gear-Heads Getting Together from all over the Midwest!
