Heritage Hall

Free indoor fun

Visit The Heritage Hall for hands-on activities, demonstrations, make and take projects by community groups emphasizing our western, agricultural history. Begin your journey at the Conestoga Covered Wagon. Meet alpacas, learn about bee keeping, touch animal skins, sew a quilt block for a veteran, and more. Make rope and crafts at the Make and Take area. Pull up a chair and sit a spell for informal demonstrations on the front porch. Participate in our contests: longest potato peel, Fastest Fingers in the West knitting and crochet, and team jigsaw puzzle.

All Heritage Hall activities are included within General Admission ticket.

Heritage Hall is located inside the climate controlled Exhibition Hall, inside the Fair gates.
