Harvest Fair and Steam Festival
In the spirit of pioneers of the old and new west, Kinetic Steam Works and Roaring Camp Railroads present The Harvest Faire and Steam Festival on October 5 & 6.
View steam-generated displays and gadgets that showcase the creativity and imagination of inventors, tinkerers, and do-it-yourselfers. Engage in heritage activities such as gold panning, candle making, or scarecrow making. Visit the blacksmith, print shop or old-fashioned candy shop.
Ride the steam train through redwood forests to Bear Mountain. Children with a train ticket may select and take home a pumpkin. Steam trains depart Roaring Camp for Bear Mountain at 11 am, 12:30 pm, and 2 pm. Tickets are $32 for adults and $23 for children ages 2-12 years. Scarecrow materials are $7. Don’t miss the chuckwagon barbecue lunch from noon to 3 p.m. Parking is $10 per car.
