Come celebrate National Ag Day, and pi(e) day! Agriculture touches our lives every day. We all eat food grown on farms and wear clothing made from natural products. Through crafts, games, activities, demonstrations, and talks, guests will see and celebrate the ways that agriculture contributes to the world. Select buildings in our 1876 town will be open with activities and demonstrations, we’ll offer tractor rides, and community partners will give us a glimpse of today’s agricultural story.

Homeschool families are welcome and can save $1 off with advanced tickets!
