CHISHOLM TRAIL FESTIVAL: Saturday, November 18
An old-fashioned, family fun festival on Saturday, Nov. 18, will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the famous Chisholm Trail that once crossed the land where Pioneer Farms is now located.
A variety of activities for children of all ages will be featured, including historical demonstrations, new exhibits, music, Old West gunfighters, a bouncy house for the kids and more. Hands-on activities will allow you to pull the chains and survey the trail, just as the pioneers did. Make-And-Take crafts will be offered for a additional fee.
Get a photo opportunity with a real Longhorn cow, and ride a horse-drawn wagon just like the cattle drovers did along the Old Chisholm Trail. Some 5 million head of cattle were moved up the Chisholm Trail from Texas to Kansas between 1867 and 1871.
Tickets are $10 person. Come one, come all! Gates open at 10 a.m. and will close at 5 p.m. Buy your tickets below to avoid lines at the gate.
