What is Steam-Up?


The Great Oregon Steam-Up is the largest event at  Powerland Heritage Park during the year and it involves all of the museums and many other participants. One of the unique aspects of the event is that most of the equipment is operating. We’ll see you the last weekend in July and the first weekend in August.

A parade takes place each day at 1:30 pm and it includes vintage tractors, trucks, and automobiles. The steam powered sawmill operates four times a day and the trolley tours the site perimeter all four days of the show.

Learn about the early machinery that made Oregon develop and grow. Hear about innovators and manufacturers of times past. Machines on display include farm tractors and implements, early engines, crawlers, fire apparatus, vintage trucks and cars, logging gear, an early Oregon flour mill, and an authentic steam sawmill. Rides include an historic trolley and a miniature railroad.

Scheduled activities: Train and trolley rides, BIG parade, steam sawmilling, traditional tractor pulling, machinery demos, threshing, flour milling, fire apparatus demos, museum tours, kids pedal tractor pulling and a Youth Passport program.

Other Attractions: Blacksmithing, Brooks Depot Museum, a Country Store, a Quilt Show, models, early electricity exhibit, miniature farm display, Operation Lifesaver, swap meet and flea market sales, country music, and great food!

Church services held Sunday mornings at 8:00 a.m.
