The Jersey County Victorian Festival

Agricultural Equipment
Jerseyville, Illinois

A Partial Line-Up of Steam Engines on the Festival Site

Labor Day Weekend

An important segment of the Festival concentrates on antique farm equipment and this event is the Official Illinois Event of the ILL-MO Tractor and Engine Club. Exhibitors of farm and farm related equipment come from across the country to show and demonstrate their equipment.

Visitors will be able to see a variety of working steam engines, tractors, and gas engines in action as well as models. There will be demonstrations of the threshing of winter wheat using antique threshing machines, an 1889 Garr-Scott sawmill will be sawing lumber, and steam engines will be plowing. The Festival is a great place to meet old friends, make new ones, and enjoy this unique hobby of preserving our agricultural history.
