By Company 3
August 2, 2017

In the summer of 1992, a few steam and gas engine enthusiasts gathered for an informal discussion on the possibility of hosting a steam and gas engine show in Goochland County, Virginia. They organized as Rockville-Centerville Steam and Gas Historical Association and hosted their first show in October of that year. About 5,000 people attended. The revenue from this show was used to support local organizations. A few years later, the show was moved from the chilly month of October to September, then expanded it to two days, then three. With the help of dedicated volunteers Field Day became a family event with a down home feel of an old time country fair while providing museum quality exhibits, preserving and maintaining historic buildings and pursuing the desire to remember local history.

The show now takes place the third full weekend in September and draws approximately 40,000 people annually. Field Day operates as a not-for-profit organization and contributes to many local charities, organizations, and non-profits, including the Massey Cancer Center, Boy Scouts of America, American Heart Association, several hospices, the Goochland Christmas Mother area, rescue squads and fire departments, Habitat for Humanity, area churches, Goochland Fellowship and Family Services and many others.
