Fall Harvest Festival

This festival is held the 2nd weekend in October, on Saturday the 14th this year, with the 15th as a rain date. We have animals and demonstrations related to the harvest, games, crafts, music, pony and hay rides, etc.

Holiday Open House

This event is held the first Saturday in December in the Sherwood House, which we decorate in the holiday spirit. Once again, we offer fun family crafts, music, and cookie decoration. Mr. and Mrs. Santa also grace us with their appearance. Because of the limited size of the Sherwood House, we ask that reservations be made in advance and request $2 per person. Come enjoy this festive occasion!
