52nd Annual Old Time Power Show
on Monday, August 1, 2016
Step back in time August 19-21, 2016, at the 52nd annual Old Time Power Show at Antique Acres in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Experience our rich heritage of agriculture with live demonstrations, home-cooked meals, exhibits, tractor pulls, a working saw mill and blacksmith shop, Sunday church and a flea market. Watch butter being churned, buy jams and jellies or enjoy the on-site petting zoo.
Prepare yourself for the sputter, hum and roar of engines of our past, from old garden tractors to powerful steam engines during one of the highlights of the weekend, the “Parade of Power.” You’ll see everything from a garden tractor to a powerful steam engine in this daily parade down the concourse of Antique Acres.
More than a thousand visitors attend the Old Time Power Show each year to see 300-400 tractors on display. The show is dedicated to the preservation and operation of antique machinery and you’ll find many of the owners demonstrating the mechanics of their tractor.

Gates open each day at 7am and parking is available for free on the grounds of Antique Acres. Be sure to visit their Facebook page for updates and their website for more information.
