  • One of the best antique engine displays in the Pa, Md area. Most engines are operating during this event. Also on display are many vintage tractors and other vehicles.
  • The public days (like the Spring Steam-Up and the Harvest Festival) are absolutely amazing. Fascinating exhibits, knowledgeable and friendly volunteers with a real love of the machinery. One of my favorite places, every child should visit here to gain an appreciation for engineering.
  • This an event that I try to attend each year. My grandfather ran a sawmill and a threshing service using the very same machines that you can see in action at the event. It is very well attended. The flea market is an interesting attraction all by itself.
  • Biggest Tractor and Steam Engine Show, I've ever attended on the East Coast. Lots of fun stuff to do. Great for families. Learning about history and how they did things over a century ago. I'm definitely going next year.
  • Fun place to check out old steam powered equipment. Great homemade, natural food and snacks.

Where to stay in Lancaster

If your trip to Pennsylvania's "Dutch Country" includes a budget for luxurious accommodations, stay at a resort in the city of Lancaster. Though quite pricey, the city's resorts offer access to on-site restaurants, fitness centers, game rooms, indoor pools, and championship golf courses. For something less expensive, consider staying at a bed and breakfast in the picturesque Amish countryside. Inns just a short ride from downtown Lancaster offer good food and comfortable rooms, plus free parking and complimentary Wi-Fi.
