The NCA has worked diligently for over 25 years to establish resources and expertise to assist in preserving operating carousels. A two volume technical manual containing hundreds of different examples of fundraising ideas, community involvement techniques, repair and maintenance tips for carousel machinery, restoration basics, and other important information applicable to saving, restoring and operating the classic wooden carousels has been provided to every carousel and or Friends group in America.

Recently formed Friends groups that do not have a manual should contact the NCA. Email

Avoiding Breakdown -- NCA Technical article Click the picture for a larger image, or Click Here to download the pdf document, Avoiding the Unpredictable Breakdown

In 1988 the NCA inaugurated the Carousel Technical Conference. Conducted each spring in a different region of the United States, these "three day weekend" workshops are designed and presented by carousel support group members and or carousel operators to help other carousels in such technical areas as mechanical repairs, insurance, preservation techniques, marketing, and promotion of our remaining carousels.
