Step Back in Time

Enjoy the Band Organ Rally at the Farmers’ Museum

August 23 and 24, 10am-5pm

Organ Rally

Can’t get enough of the happiest music on Earth? Then come to the Band Organ Rally (Carousel Organ Association of America Rally). The rally features a dozen large band organs. You will hear the sounds of an entire band played mechanically by organs made by Gavioli, Ruth & Sohn, Stinson, and Wurlitzer. Members of the Carousel Organ Association of America will bring these remarkable machines from all over the eastern United States.

You will also hear many strolling hand-cranked grinder organs throughout the museum’s historic village. Holding its own, the Mighty, Majestic, Military Band Organ of the Empire State, which makes its home at the museum, will give regular concerts in the Carousel Pavilion.

Admission to all Step Back in Time weekends is included with regular museum admission. Members of the New York State Historical Association enjoy free admission.  Click Here for more information!
