Minkiö Steam Festival

Description

Come along also this year to celebrate, see and experience the power of steam! The best steam festival of Finnish summer will be at Jokioinen Museum Railway also in summer 2018.

At the festival of 2018 there will be more agricultural machines present. The idea of festival is to show which kind of machines were used on Finnish farms and construction sites decades before the modern day air-conditioned diesel tractors - and even before electricity.

The festival gates are open both on Saturday and Sunday. Three steam trains are in traffic between Jokioinen and Humppila. At Minkiö festival area there is also a small festival train running. Steam-powered agricultural machines, steam rollers, tractors, vintage cars and miniature steam engines will operate and be on display. All the steam locomotives of Jokioinen Museum Railway will be running on the festival weekend.

info• If You want to come and bring your engine on display, please contact us.
• Only day tickets are sold on festival weekend. The prices are 16 euros (adults) and 8 euros (chidren). The tickets are sold at festival gates. Tickets are valid for single-day entrance in festival area and on museum trains.
