Wedding Ceremonies at 11am and 1:30pm

Visit the 1850 Pioneer Farm for a recreated pioneer wedding! Travel out to the farm to meet Living History Farms’ June bride as you join the 1850 Farm staff for a wedding celebration, including a wedding ceremony and cake for the guests! Weddings brought the pioneer community together for traditional foods and fun. Discover the most popular gifts for a pioneer bride, help in the “shivaree,” and play a good-natured, very noisy prank on the wedding couple. Visitors will become part of the day’s fun, with ceremonies at 11:00am and 1:30pm.

Event activities are included in regular admission to Living History Farms.
