The Pioneer Power Show started in 1981. Tractors, Wheat Threshing/Binding, Bread Making, Swap Meet, Horse Demos, Equipment Parade & More in Union Gap every 3rd weekend in August. Hosted by The Central Washington Antique Farm Equipment Club, and the Central Washington Agricultural Museum.
On Thursday, August 18th, 2022 we set up the Eastern Washington Expeditions Chuckwagon booth up in Union Gap, Washington out front of the Central Washington Agricultural Museum by the foot bridge for the annual Pioneer Power Show & Swap Meet.
This year the EWE Chuckwagon served Pancakes, sausage & coffee for breakfast. For lunch we served Italian Sausage covered with sauteed peppers & onions, Italian Meatballs covered with marinara sauce, and Bratwurst with sauerkraut. We also served shaved ice, sweet tea, and bottled water.
Saturday and Sunday the Pioneer Power Show & Swap Meet started at 8 AM and ran until 5 PM. There were many fun things to do and to watch; Shop the Swap Meet, tram rides from the parking lot into the museum, tractor pulls, horse powered farm equipment demos, sawmill demo, apple packing line demo, a working blacksmith shop, music, rides for the kids, equipment parades, kids can run an excavator, quilt show, Vintage Snowmobile on display, and so much more. It was a very fun event for the whole family.
