Children’s Area


The Children’s Area at the Hoes Down is truly amazing. There are HUNDREDS of things to do, for kids of all ages. Enjoy live entertainment, play games, grind grain, pet an adorable pig, climb all over the hay fort, and splash into the dunk tank – it is all free and included in the price of admission!

A Nighttime Storywalk – 7:15pm

Come join us on a magical journey through the farm at sunset on Saturday’s eve. Follow the lanterns and musicians and see our harvest story unfold with a surprise at the river. Begins at the Utah Phillips Family Stage at 7:15. Don’t miss it! Great for young and old alike!

Kids (aged 0-99) have their own hands-on area with all sorts of arts and crafts, pumpkin carving,
petting zoo, ice cream churning, and more. Get wet in our water roller coaster with dunking tank; beat your time through an obstacle course made of farm found objects; climb on the towering hay fort; go on a nature walk; and then spend some time reading in the tipi or listening to a story on the Family Stage. Yahoo, there's so much to do!
