This event occurs monthly, on the first Saturday of January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October and November.


Features a variety of themed, hands-on activities for kids to explore the history of the American West.

Monthly themes and activities:

June - Cowboy life was not all about taking care of cattle. Out on the range or on long cattle drives, cowboys also had to take care of themselves. Discover how they cared for their day-to-day needs and what they did for entertainment. 

July - Enjoy a variety of activities to celebrate Independence Day including a cake walk. 

August - Learn how to read a brand and then create your own design.

September - Many modern games have Native American roots. Test your skills as you play traditional games like Game of Grace, ring toss, and more.

October - Put on your favorite cowboy gear and join us for stick horse barrel races, roping, and more at the Little Buckaroos Round-Up. 

November - Make your own tipi and personalize it with symbols that are meaningful to you.

For ages 4 – 12.
