The 30th annual Pioneer Farm Days show will be held the weekend of October 9 & 10 at the American Legion Park in Oak Creek. The yearly event is a celebration of the fall harvest and the history of mechanization on the farm. This family event has something for everyone, with a farmers market, flea market, farm toy show, kids events and reasonably priced food.
Featuring displays of antique machinery from the earliest horse drawn equipment, to stationary engines and tractors, the event highlights the advances in farm technology over the last 100+ years. Huge steam driven tractors will be powering a sawmill as logs are cut into lumber. Demonstrations of grain threshing, shingle sawing, blacksmithing, feed grinding and lots more will be going on among the many displays at the event.
Each year, Pioneer farm days features a different brand or type of old time machinery. This year, the show is featuring garden tractors and is being presented as a regional show for the Vintage Garden Tractor Club of America. Old garden tractors are a popular item among collectors due to their small size and ease of hauling.
Pioneer Farm Days is presented by the Pioneer Farm Machinery Club, which is an organization dedicated to the collection, restoration and exhibition of tractors, engines and machinery from our agricultural heritage.
The show grounds are open from 8am til 5pm both days. Adults are $4, kids under 12 are free. American Legion Park is located at 9327 South Shepard Avenue in Oak Creek. From I-94, exit at Ryan Road (Hwy 100). Go East 2 miles to Shepard Avenue, then North to American Legion Park. For more info call 414-768-8580 or see our website at www.pioneerfarmdays.com
