The Old Machinery and Craft Fair is held each second Saturday of September in the grounds of the Capella Pioneer Village.

See 'Jackieboy', the big tractor made from World War 2 tank components in the lunchtime parade. Enjoy the vintage tractors ploughing, balancing on a see-saw and competing in the tractor pull. Appreciate the shearer's skill in removing fleeces for the roustabout to gather up and throw onto the wool table. Then watch the wool being baled.

The engine men and women have their stationary engines working and the blacksmiths are hard at it. Local craft and market stalls operate and the museum collections housed in the Peak Downs station homestead, in the Gordon Downs woolshed, shearers quarters and station store, and in various other buildings are open for your enjoyment.
