Last year on October 4 and 5, I went to see Vouk's Steam Show in the village of St. Stephen, near St. Cloud.

Besides the steam engines and gas tractors running, there were grain threshing, corn shredding and lumber sawing demonstrations, operated mostly by big Case steam engines and Minneapolis and Twin City gas tractors.

The show is mostly owned and run by William Vouk Sr., and his sons and neighbors. It started in 1965 partly because William Vouk's brother-in-law urged him to put on a grain threshing demonstration. It has grown a lot since and attendance is growing, too.



Besides the events mentioned, there are antique cars, a blacksmith shop, music and eats.

Vouk and sons furnish and run one 80 H.P. Case and one 65 H.P. Case steam engine and one 35-70 Minneapolis and one 40-65 Twin City gas tractor and three grain separators.
