Update, March 14, 2019: The online ticket sales page is working now.
Baby animals are arriving at the living farm at the American West Heritage Center, and tickets are now on sale to see them on Wednesday-Sunday, April 3-6. During these Baby Animal Days, you’ll see lambs, piglets, calves, kids (as in goats), foals, chicks, and ducklings.
The baby bears are coming, too. Arrive early, because the lines are long to see them.
In addition to seeing the baby animals, watch carpenters and cooks on the farm, greet the mountain men in the traders cabin, talk to the pioneers in their encampment, watch a traditional sheep shearing, ride a pony and a train, catch some candy fired from a cannon, and munch on a bag of kettle corn.
Hours for Baby Animal Days are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. April 3-6. The Candy Cannon goes off daily at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The Baby Bear Line closes daily at 4 p.m.
Admission is $9 for adults and $7 for children ages 3-11. Tickets are available at the American West Heritage Center. Donate a can of food at the heritage center to receive $1 off your admission.
There’s also a link to buy tickets online from the Baby Animal Days page, but when I tested it, the ticket purchase page didn’t fully display. I tried testing the ticket page in several browsers and got the same results. I sent a message to the heritage center to report this issue.
