If you're looking for a great weekend away or perhaps just a day trip from the city, the Oberon Highlands Steam and Vintage Fair is a fun family event. Held over two days on the second weekend in February each year, this event caters to everyone.



The Fair kicks off on the Saturday morning with the Grand Rally at 10am along Oberon Street. Enjoy all the pomp and ceremony of a grand parade you will see old Traction Steam Engines, Military Vehicles, Vintage Cars and Trucks and marching bands rolling and strolling the length of Oberon's Main Street.



On the Saturday the gates of the Rally Ground are open to the public from 10am to 4pm and on Sunday from 8am to around 2pm. Tickets are valid for the entire weekend and can be purchased from the Rally Ground or the Oberon Tarana Heritage Railway Grounds and include admission into the rally and the Heritage Railway Event both days and travel on the courtesy bus.



From start to finish this event is reminiscent of an old fashioned fair with a variety of displays including stationary steam engines, traction engines, vintage vehicles, wood chopping demonstrations, chain sawing displays, handicrafts, woodworking, pot throwing, market stalls and information stands. But the one display that transforms this fair is the Flying Pieman Organ . As you walk into the grounds you are treated to the music of this magnificent instrument and instantly transported to the "fairs"of yesteryear.
