Come celebrate agriculture at the FREE 10th Annual Farm City Celebration Harvest Festival. The event is Saturday November 8th, from 10-2pm at the Bidwell Mansion State Historic Park.
We are bringing the farm to the city with a 4-H interactive animal display featuring sheep, goats, rabbits and poultry. Enjoy cattle roping and saddles provides by California Cattlewomen. California Women for Agriculture and the Glenn County Dairy Princess will have a cow milking interactive demonstration. Don’t forget to catch the CSUC stock dog demonstrations, apple painting, modern and vintage farm equipment and tractors along with Noble Orchards sampling many apple products. The Miss Butte County Court will be assisting in some fun arts & crafts and games and Girl Scouts with hands on activities.
Take a horse drawn carriage ride around the Bidwell Mansion from TJ Farms Carriage Company for a special event price. Kids of all ages will enjoy Boy Scouts Troop 2 will be building a rope bridge obstacle course, a must experience event! Boy Scouts will be Scouting for Food, please bring canned food items for them.
The Bidwell Mansion will be open for first level tours. Enjoy games, arts & crafts and a free bounce house for the kids. We are lucky to have Madison Bear Garden barbeque hamburgers for a special event price. For the ease of parking there will be a small shuttle going from Chico Junior High School to the Harvest Festival, just look for the John Deere tractor. Bring the whole family as the first 500 families will receive a free reusable tote bag filled with yummy local commodities and goodies.
The mission of the Farm City Celebration is to increase understanding about the value of agriculture to the urban community and show its importance to all within Chico and the surrounding communities.
Thanks and see you all there!
