Blow Off Some Steam

Join us for a day in steam! On September 7, have chance to get up close and personal...and a little dirty with stationary and portable steam engines and a 65 HP Case steam tractor, too. If you love steam (and who doesn't?), you'll love this day in the country. So pack a picnic and your goggles and let's hit the open road of adventure!!! Car pooling recommended and available to those without a personal airship to get to the venue. Huzzah!

    This is always a fun event.
    Lots of great "heavy metal" equipment with their live steam powered equipment usually in operation. the collection of vintage restored trucks is a must see.
    Also a great warm up to Beakerhead which starts on the following Wednesday September 11.
