The Dougherty Museum will host their annual Yesteryear Farm Show Friday, Aug. 25 through Sunday, Aug. 27 from 9 a.m.-8:30 p.m. each day. Every summer the museum hosts this fun event that features antique tractors, farm machinery, steam engines, threshing and bailing equipment and spinning and weaving demonstrations. The ever-popular tractor parade will take place each night, and food and drinks will be available throughout the weekend.
The Yesteryear Farm Show is a great event for kids of all ages. Explore working antique farm equipment, enjoy live demonstrations, watch the Calico & Boots square dancing team kick up their heels and dig into the free ice cream social on Saturday evening at 7 p.m.
Admission to the outdoor show is free, and indoor, museum admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 6-12. Children under 6 are admitted free. Parking is free for both the outdoor and indoor exhibits. Food and beverages will be available for purchase throughout the event.

In addition to farming equipment, Boulder County’s Dougherty Museum houses a collection of beautifully restored antique automobiles, powered by steam, electricity and internal combustion engines. Some of the vehicles are 100 years old and still in running order. The museum is open every summer from June through August 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
The Dougherty Museum is located at 8306 North 107th Street, about 2 miles south of Longmont on Highway 287 on the east side of the road. For more information, click here.
