Fall Steam Festival

Trains, Tractors & Traditions!

September 27-28, 2024
9:30am – 4pm

Free Admission!*

The Age of Steam Roundhouse Museum’s Fall Steam Festival: Trains, Tractors & Traditions, is an event to relive some of the most fondly remembered aspects of historic Americana; steam machines, base ball, and hotdogs. With the help of the Iron Horses of the Erie Railroad vintage base ball club, guests to this event can watch base ball played as it was in the old days, in empty fields, with little more equipment than what you and your friends could sling over your shoulders. There will be a food vendor present to sell hotdogs and other fare to guests while they enjoy the ball games.

Apart from base ball, various steam tractor operators will be present to showcase their machines, including a shingle mill and other belt-driven implements. All of this will be framed with the museum’s own steam locomotive which will give rides on the museum grounds to guests throughout the event. This special event will prove to be a fun and exciting experience for those who want to get a taste of the classic, Norman Rockwell era of American leisure and life.

Participating Teams are:

The Iron Horses of the Erie Railroad: Dayton, OH

The Spiegel Grove Squires: Fremont, OH

The Akron Black Stockings: Akron, OH

Note: Base ball games are on Saturday only and yes, base ball is correct.

*The grounds showcasing the tractors, implements, and base ball games are free access during this event.  Train rides are $5 per person for each ride and tours are regular tour prices.
