Antique machinery fest set in Kent
The Connecticut Antique Machinery Association in Kent will host its 33rd annual fall festival, a celebration of machinery that made America great, Sept. 22 to 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Offerings will include giant steam engines, a steam locomotive, gas engines and farm tractors, CAMA’s collection of steam- and gas-powered machinery in full operation; and vendors who will set up a variety of old machinery, engines and tools.
The museum campus contains not just the largest collection of operating industrial steam engines in the state, but also separate collections devoted to large and small internal combustion engines, farm tractors and agricultural machinery, a narrow gauge railroad featuring Hawaii Railway Co. 5, a restored and operational 1925 steam locomotive, the CT Museum of Mining and Mineral Science, the historic Cream Hill Agricultural School, an operating blacksmith shop and an operating sawmill exhibit.
For information, call the museum at 31 Kent-Cornwall Road (Route 7), at 860-927-0050 or visit the organization’s website.
