Discover the treasures in Piscataway Park! This popular annual Children’s Day event features a self-guided tour through the park for young explorers as they follow a discovery map and learn about local history and agriculture. Children of all ages will enjoy meeting “Ben Bolton,” who lives on the National Colonial Farm, and helping him with farm chores and playing colonial games during this all-day interactive event that the whole family will love.
Visit the barnyard, meet the farm’s heritage breed animals (Milking Devon cattle, Hog Island sheep, Buckeye chickens, and Ossabaw hogs,) stop by the museum garden and join our friends from the National Children’s Museum for special performances of Princess Sunni’s Birthday, pack a picnic lunch, and enjoy a day in the park.
Admission to the event will be paid at the “gate.” One free adult admission per paying child: $10 non-members; $5 members; children 2 and under are free.
