NYSEA Home Page



The New York Steam Engine Association is located at 3349 Gehan Road, Canandaigua New York 14424. NYSEA is a member owned organization that was formed in Canandaigua, New York in 1960. The club’s purpose is to promote and encourage interest in the operation, ownership and preservation of the antique equipment powered by steam or otherwise.

Originally the show was held at Roseland Park until 1971 when the Club purchased 28 acres on Gehan Road. After many dedicated hours of work by Club member’s over the years, NYSEA has grown to 100 acres of beautiful show grounds in Ontario County.

I’d like to start off by saying that I hope this letter finds all of you happy, healthy, and safe. I know that these are unprecedented times and as we all learn to maneuver our way through this new normal, know that we at the pageant missed being able to see you all last year. While our decision to cancel last year’s show was not an easy one, the board felt that it was in the best interest of our entire community, volunteers, members, exhibitors, and guests.
Please know that your continued support, donations, and memberships mean the world to us and the livelihood of our organization. We encourage our loyal members to print off and fill out the NYSEA Membership form and return it with your membership fee. 
Thank you for your continued support,
Rick Finley, President
