Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are saddened that we have had to cancel Barnyard Babies for 2020.  The annual kick off to the opening of our summer season, Barnyard Babies was originally scheduled for April 25.  This is an event that our community and surrounding communities look forward to each year and we start planning months in advance.  But the health and safety of everyone, from our staff, volunteers and exhibitors to the families who attend, take top priority.  Please mark your calendars now and plan to join us next year on April 24, 2021.

Barnyard Babies Family Festival

RAIN OR SHINE

$6 adults, $3 ages 3-12, ages 2 and under free

Experience life on the farm with so much to see and do for all ages! All attractions are included in the cost of admission. NEW this year is the 4-H Zone where you will have the opportunity to learn about the clubs and separately support their projects.
Meet some new furry friends and get reacquainted with your barnyard favorites – alpacas, goats, cows, sheep, pigs, goslings, horses, rabbits, chickens – a barnyard menagerie!

Lots of fun for kids! Ride pedal tractors and bounce on farm hoppers. Dive into a corn pile. Ride a pony. Play games. Fun for all ages! Explore tractors and Mater and Lightning replicas. Imagine harvesting wheat or soybeans in a combine cab simulator. Watch an artist carve a wooden masterpiece with a chain saw.

Take a scenic train ride around the pond and through the woods. Gaze at giant animal kites dancing in the sky and, weather permitting, see the world’s largest kite! Marvel at a working blacksmith’s skill. Watch drones fly and learn how technology is used today to produce more with fewer resources. Questions about farming or food? Ask our farmers; they’re happy to talk with you.
Hear the powerful vroom-vroom of antique and classic tractors on the Parade of Power. Discover hidden treasures in the Museum of Farming that helped shape the powerful equipment used on today’s farms. So much to see and do for all ages!
