34th annual Dan Rion Memorial Antique Engine Jamboree & Powerfest
September 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am$4 – $13806.
The Antique Engine Jamboree at Hanford Mills Museum celebrates the ingenuity of the past, present, and future.
This jamboree features antique tractors, Model A Fords, outboard motors, Doodlebugs, hit and miss engines, model steam engines, and water-cooled and air-cooled gas engines. Exhibitors have included individual collectors as well as members of the Franklin Doodlebug Club, the Mohican Car Club, the Antique Outboard Motor Club, Tired Iron of Butternut Valley, the Long Island Antique Engine Association, the Hudson-Mohawk Chapter of the Pioneer Gas Engine Association, and more. Popular features include a 1926 Ahrens Fox Pumper Firetruck and the 1957 Nash Metropolitan Hook and Ladder Fire Truck Ride from the Catskill Game Farm.
?The antique engines on display demonstrate the ingenuity of the past,? says Hanford Mills Executive Director Liz Callahan. ?The exhibitors have great stories to tell of the hours of tinkering, detective work and mechanical know-how necessary to bring these engines back to working order, and to keep them that way.?
Food trucks and local food will offer lunch and snack items. Hands-on kids activities, local bluegrass music, and demonstrations in the Mill round out the Antique Engine Jamboree.
