Each person receives their choice of ice cream or soda. The Prairie Harvest Festival brings the museum's historical learning activities outdoors during a two-day celebration. Revelers can sample produce grown in the village gardens, try their hand at games played by past generations, and work their feet during live musical performances. The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 17, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, August 18.
Centennial Village Museum
The Centennial Village opens a window to the past with living-history demonstrations that re-create American life as it was 100 years ago. As visitors stroll through the 7-acre grounds, they can explore more than two dozen historic structures, including grand homes, a courthouse, and a blacksmith’s shop. Time-swept denizens share tales of their daily lives that provide unique insight into turn-of-the-century struggles. A vast farm area and historic gardens fill the town with lush greenery and a working merry-go-round helps distract visitors from the hourly recalibration of the park’s time machine.
