If you like to get hands-on, don’t miss these amazing activities:

  • Pet the friendly farm critters provided by Butterfield Acres
  • Try making rope, or branding a barn board and take home a souvenir!
  • Churning butter & making ice cream (without a freezer!) – sampling is encouraged!
  • Grab a partner & spin them ‘round at the old-fashioned barn dance
  • Everyone loves the Kickback Challenge:
  • Complete the four listed activities, collect four stamps, and enter to win a family prize pack: Lassoing, Gymkhana, Egg Find, and Bucket Brigade

Finally, get ready for some hand-clapping, foot-stopping fun with live entertainment provided by the Prairie Mountain Fiddlers and Chinook Country Line Dancers! We'll see you there, pardner.
