Visit the Homestead for hands-on activities, demonstrations, make and take projects by community groups emphasizing our western, agriculture heritage. Milk June the “Cow”, meet alpacas, take a “Settler Selfie” at the Conestoga wagon, decorate a cookie, and sew a quilt block for a veteran. Touch animal skins, make rope, and peddle a toddler vehicle. Admire prize winning flowers and vegetables grown by Colorado residents and have your gardening questions answered by the experts.

A detailed downloadable schedule will be available in 2021!
