Our History

The first show was held the last weekend of August 1974 at State Park Speedway in Wausau, Wisconsin and lasted two days.  Threshing, Log Sawing, Horsepower, and many hit and miss engines were part of the demonstrations.


In 1975 the show was moved to the Kurt Umnus Farm near Edgar where it has been held since. Twenty-five members started this show with the mission to preserve and demonstrate the agricultural heritage of the North Central Wisconsin area.


In 2014, the club purchased the Kurt Umnus Farm as our permanent home and the grounds will always be known as the Kurt Umnus Farm.


As interest in early 20th century history grows, so grows membership in our organization. As a non-profit group, we are continually re-investing in our grounds and improving our annual show.


Started in 1974, the Edgar Steam Show has continued to provide high quality entertainment and education for the surrounding communities. We are a 501c3 Non-profit Corporation.
