The Past in Motion

Aug. 13, 2022

Where can you find 1,000 tractors? What about 600 antique engines? Dozens more old and cool cars and trucks? This weekend, they’re all in one spot: the Buckley Old Engine Show. The 58th annual show takes place Aug. 18-21, and the myriad attractions will have your brain—and your wheels—spinning. Old-timey music fills the air as you wander through a flea market filled with arts and crafts and woodworking demonstrations. In addition to all those vehicles and engines, you’ll also find on-site an 1800’s saw mill, a 250-horse-power Corliss stationary steam engine, a farm animal exhibit, and more. (That more includes fresh popcorn made in a cast-iron hog kettle for snacking while you explore.) Perfect for the family—especially little ones who love all things that go VROOM—the show also has a kids’ play area, scavenger hunt, and tractor pull. Get all the details at buckleyoldengineshow.org and find the showgrounds at 6090 W 2 1/2 Rd in Buckley.
