Animal Extravaganza at Conner Prairie

Daily
Animal Extravaganza
Supported by Elanco

Spring has arrived and so have the new baby animals at Conner Prairie Interactive History Park! Join us throughout the month of April as we celebrate these feathered and furry friends. The Animal Encounters Barn will be bustling with baby lambs, kids, calves and maybe some surprises that you can pet, hold and brush. Then visit 1836 Prairietown to say hello to the oxen, horses, cattle and hogs. You may even see a baby pig or two. Then head over to 1863 Civil War Journey: Raid on Indiana where you might be asked to help gather eggs from the chicken coop or look for animals that escaped Morgan’s raiders. Speak with our livestock specialists to hear how Conner Prairie is committed to preserving and saving rare breeds of animals. The park is home to a breed of hogs that dates back to 1529 and a breed of cattle that only has 15 left in the whole country – and three of them are at Conner Prairie.

April Extravaganza occurs daily and is included in the price of general admission. Admission is $14/adults, $13/seniors 65+, $9/youth (ages 2-12), free for members and youth under 2.
