The National Pike Steam, Gas and Horse Association was created in 1980 by five local men who donated five acres of land to begin the show. These men all came from different backgrounds but all appreciated the power of agricultural and machinery and especially how the two worked together.
In 1980, the men worked together to build the showgrounds, volunteered their machinery for displays and demonstrations and coordinated the entertainment. Today, the National Pike Steam, Gas and Horse Association has grown to more than 100 acres and 600 members who dedicate their time and expertise to making the annual show happen.
The next National Pike Steam, Gas and Horse Association Show is Aug. 11-13 in Brownsville, PA. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day and will cost adults $7 for adults and $5 for children. Senior day is Friday and tickets are discounted to $5.
