What is Steam-Up?
The Great Oregon Steam-Up is the largest event at Antique Powerland 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 July 30-31, 2016 and August 6-7, 2016.
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, models, early electricity exhibit, miniature farm display, Operation Lifesaver, swap meet and flea market sales, country music, and great food!
3rd Annual Quilt Show at the Great Oregon Steam-UpThis year, follow the trolleys to Hopmere Station, where you’ll find The Great Oregon Steam-Up Quilt Show. Thanks to the leadership of Vickey Winn (a very active APMA and OVMM volunteer) and her team, the quilt show is gaining notoriety. Come see quilts of a variety of shapes and sizes, embroidery items and cross- stitch items as well. There are vendors, quilt raffles, ready-made items, furniture, vintage sewing machine, fabric, and demonstrations. Visit all the museums where additional quilts will be displayed.
