New Brighton Stockyard Days


In 1981, Stockyard Days (SYD), named by former NBAHS President Gayle Bromander, started with steam locomotive rides on the Belt Line tracks with boarding in the old stockyards area. Thousands of locals and visitors rode the train that weekend. The New Brighton Jaycees and the New Brighton Area Historical Society sponsored the 1981 and 1982 Stockyard Days.  In 1983 SYD was incorporated with all of the civic groups joining in.   The NBAHS continues to be involved with Stockyard Days from that first year to the present.
