On April 27th -28th prepare to be entertained and amazed by what can only be imagined as the “Renaissance of Railroading.”  Experience Steam Railfest 2019.  Free admission and only 30 minutes from Ventura!  This festival is a celebration of steam power, railroading, antique tractors, vehicles & engines, vintage wares & oddities, unique performances, early transportation and culture mixed with a bit of Steampunk fun.  There will be live steam locomotive train rides, Orchard Bluegrass Band, a Fillmore Citrus Packing House Tour & Caboose Ride Adventure, Dr. Solar’s Gypsy Wagon Medicine Man Show, antique carousel rides, car show, creative vendors and artisans, unique exhibits, model train displays, movie props, live entertainment, food, wine tasting and more!  There is no other family festival quite like this one.  So mark your calendars for one of the biggest events in Ventura County’s little historic town of Fillmore.

On April 26th, enjoy Fillmore & Western’s Steam Railfest pre-party aboard the “Beer, Wine & Blues” train.  Offering beer tasting from Wolf Creek Brewery and wine + hard cider tasting from Reyes Winery.  Appetizers are available for pairing and can be purchased while onboard.  Passengers also have the opportunity to dance and mingle in vintage Pullman dining cars & outdoor flat cars (if weather permits) while a live band performs into the night.
