It’s the 50th Anniversary of the Old Time Power Show. Help celebrate Iowa’s tradition of farming and agriculture as you step back in time August 15th thru the 17th. Antique Acres is located at 7610 Waverly Rd. in Cedar Falls. Gates open at 7 am each day and are packed full of fun and excitement for all ages.
“Founded in 1964, Antique Acres is best known for its yearly Old Time Power Show in August, which is dedicated to the preservation and operation of antique machinery. Here you will find exhibitors displaying collections of farming equipment of all kinds, jelly being made on an old fashioned wood stove, or butter being churned. A “Parade of Power” from antique garden tractors to powerful steam engines, which put on a beautiful light show after dark, is only one of the 3-day show events.
A museum at the Acres houses many old time and valuable pieces which can also be viewed during one of the many tours conducted for out-of-town groups, schools or just someone stopping by. A campground with shelter and stage are also available as well as an air-conditioned hall with kitchen facilities to meet your needs.
Enjoy live demonstrations of steam engines, horse and tractor plowing, rock crushing, rope making, threshing, tractor pulls, parades, a huge flea market, plus live stage entertainment, museums, and great food! There are old-time games and prizes for the kids, sand art, pedal tractor pull and the Dean of Juggling. See history come to life as you step back to a simpler time,” according to Antique Acre, Inc.
