Event description

Description

Preserving and interpreting America’s industrial heritage is important. The 16th Annual Soulé Live Steam Festival in Meridian, Mississippi will show how things were made and how hard people worked back in the early 20th century. This event is hosted at historic Soulé Steam Feed Works, America’s last intact steam engine factory. Always held on the first Saturday of November, this year the festival falls on Friday and Saturday, November 2–3, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Expect to see a variety of informative and entertaining industrial/craftsman demonstrations around the site. The operating belt-driven machine shop is a rare experience. The factory manufactured the Soulé Rotary and Spee-D-Twin steam engines from 1892 until 1980. The museum also features an impressive collection of portable and stationary steam engines that will operate using “live steam” including a 1905 Watts-Campbell Corliss and 1870 Manchester Locomotive Works.

The museum welcomes the Carousel Organ Association of America’s Fall Rally. The combination of carousel organs and steam engines will give visitors a small taste of what the British have enjoyed for generations at the Great Dorset Steam Fair in England. The Vintage Wheels Car Club will host an antique car show on Saturday.
