The Greensburg Power of the Past Club is a non-profit organization, founded in 1989, to promote interest in antique tractors.
The Greensburg Power of the Past is able to educate its members and the general public of the historical, technical, and social contributions and impact of these items of the past. One of the goals is to be involved in giving back to the local community. Our main goal is to preserve a part of our heritage for all generations and historians to enjoy.
All tractors and equipment that are 40 years old or older are welcome at the show. Come and see all the antique machinery used as the days gone by like; plows, disks, combines, planters, cultivators and many more. Not only will you be able to view the antique machinery, you will also get the opportunity to watch these machines operate.
Witness the saw milling with the almighty Steam engines and other various shows such as the noon whistles.
After enjoying all the affects of the antique machinery you can stroll through the flea market booths and you can purchase a variety of items including antiques, arts, crafts and collectibles.
There is an antique tractor pull on Thursday and Friday nights at 6 p.m. This is an event for farm tractors made before 1959 to test their pulling power and show off their restoration. This pull is a low gear percentage pull.
There are tractor games throughout the weekend, a parade of antique power on Saturday, grocery bingo, quilts on display, an old fashion fiddle contest, horse and pony pulls and even kids games on Saturday evening.
There will be a toy show on Saturday and Sunday. Our annual consignment auction is on Sunday morning.
Come and enjoy the fun and activities of the Greensburg Power of the Past.
