The Grease Steam & Rust Association (GSR) is an organization, formed for the purpose of preservation, collection, restoration and exhibition of old and antique farming equipment. The third weekend of October each year is set aside to display the results of this effort with operating steam engines, tractors, small engines and farm machinery. Your support by attendance is sincerely appreciated. This group of dedicated individuals volunteers their time, efforts, and resources to promote Fulton County and our rich farming history in the surrounding Tri-State area. Since its formation in 1980, the Grease Steam and Rust Association have supported the Fulton County Chamber of Commerce and the annual Fulton Fall Folk Festival (FFFF) parade and activities.

Fund raising for GSR is limited and sponsorships are necessary for our annual show expenses and the GSR portion of the FFFF parade expenses. Your sponsorship is a good means for you to help our community be more aware of your support and presence in the county. We are optimistic you will be able to support this community program.

Our fund raising and sponsorships are all motivated to keep showground entry fees to a minimum and the GSR is inviting local businesses, organizations and individuals to assist financially. If you are able to do so; your financial support would be greatly appreciated.

Please help us to continue this memorable event by partnering with us to ensure we have the financial resources to continue this Fulton County tradition. We would be grateful if you could help support the cost of this event by making a monetary donation.
