Pageant of Steam is an annual steam fair held in the Town of Hopewell, New York. It started in 1960 and is hosted by the New York State Steam Engine Association.
The fair starts the first Wednesday in August and lasts four days. Besides steam engines, it features an antique tractor pull and a large flea market. Due to the nearby Empire Farm Days event in Seneca Falls, held from Tuesday until Thursday, some of the flea market vendors and many visitors attend the Steam Pageant on Friday and Saturday.
Until 1971, when 28 acres were purchased on Gehan Road off State Route 5 and US 20 - 3 miles East of the City of Canandaigua, the event was held at various places, including the old site of Roseland Waterpark.
