The U.P. Steam and Gas Engine Association has held a show every Labor Day weekend since 1977, and even in the midst of a pandemic, we are determined to keep that tradition alive. We won’t be gathering together in person this year, so we’re taking to the show online with special content on our social media outlets and our website.
What is a Virtual Show?
While we can’t replicate the excitement of our annual show, we can provide you with photos and videos of the steam and gas-powered machinery you love. These “exhibits” will appear on our social media outlets and our website
Our virtual show will run September 4-7.
A new video will premiere on our YouTube channel at 9 AM each day.
Photos and videos will be posted on our Facebook page at 15 minute intervals, 10 AM – 5 PM, Friday through Saturday, and 10 AM- 4 PM on Monday.
Additional photos and/or videos will be posted on Instagram at random times throughout weekend.
How to Access Our Virtual Show
Not a fan of social media? No worries. Slideshow compilations of the social media content will be posted to our website on Tuesday, September 8.
How You Can Participate in Our Virtual Show
To be a part of our virtual show, simply email photos and/or videos of your antique steam or gas powered equipment to 2020VirtualShow@gmail.com.
Please include the year, make and model of your machinery, as well as any other information you wish to publically share i.e. owner’s name, history of the equipment, or unique features.
We’re also accepting photos and videos taken during past events. Please include the year the photo was taken, as well as any other information you wish to publicly share.
Submissions will be accepted through Thursday, August 20. All submissions received will appear on one or more of our social media outlets during our virtual show.
The more participants we have, the better our virtual show will be. Feel free to invite others to join in the fun.
