Kids, families, and animal lovers of all ages are invited to spend time among some of the cutest baby animals around: baby goats, sheep, bunnies and chicks. Bowls of food are available to feed the animals, and trained handlers are ready to help you hold them. It’s a great opportunity for kids to get up close and personal with the delicate joys of spring, and the adorable photo ops are endless. The animals are enclosed under a large tent, so visitors can enjoy them rain or shine.

Spring Babies

You can purchase a wristband to see and hold the baby animals, and it will also get you into the kids play area, which includes a corn seed pit, hay bale maze, playground equipment, pedal tractors, and hayrides. We will have several food trucks, the giant slide, pony rides, the ever-popular corn kernel dunk tank.

This delightful festival is operated by the Bouwman family, who also run Twin Cities Harvest Festival and Maze. The family owns this special plot of farmland and has used it to bring the community together every spring and every fall. The festival grounds are located at 8001 109th Ave. N in Brooklyn Park, just off Hwy 169.
