Georgian Bay Steam Show
The show's first meeting was in 1965 in the Shanty Bay Golf Club shed, where a steam engine was stored. The name of the club came about because a few men from Collingwood all had the same interest in antiques and steam engines, etc. They thought it might be an exciting idea to form a club for people to show their equipment and also demonstrate how it runs. These men had been to other shows and decided to have one in their area. The club was started and has grown to be one of the biggest and best around. The show travelled around from Barrie to Collingwood to Cookstown to Beeton and then back to Cookstown, where it is currently held each Civic Long Weekend.
