Participation is part of the fun. Visitors can try their hand at the everyday jobs of the late 1800s and help costumed volunteers with chores such as doing laundry with a washboard and wringer, churning butter, and making buttons. During the event the blacksmith can be seen making hinges, nails, and other hardware needed around the ranch. Hands-on activities include tatting, ribbon braiding or embroidery, and playing the games your great grandparent may have played. Guided tours of the homestead take place throughout the day.

A new attraction this year is a photo booth where visitors can dress in costumes and take an “old-time” photo.

No food is for sale at the event; please leave pets and bikes at home.
