Q: Do I have to buy tickets online?

A: Online ticket sales helps to spread guests throughout the day to eliminate long lines.  However, tickets will also be available at the door for the 2024 event.

Q: Will I be able to pet the animals?

A: Yes, most animals you will be able to interact with and pet. We do ask that you sanitize before and after petting them. There are exceptions; the bears, as always, will only be for your viewing pleasure. Also, you will only be able to view the piglets and some of the exotic animals. Any animals that you will not be able to physically touch will be clearly marked as such.

Q: Will you be selling food?

A: We will have food vendors and concessions available during our main festival days

Q:  May we bring our own food?

A:  Yes, you are welcome to bring your own food.  Areas for picnicking on the grass as well as picnic tables will be available.

Q:  Will we be able to ride the train and ponies?

A:  Yes, these rides are included in your tickets!  These are one of our most popular attractions for young children. Train rides are open to everyone. Pony rides are only available to children 3 to 12 and under 100 pounds. Please be patient as we work through the lines as effectively as possible.  

Q: If I buy passes for the event for one day are they good for any other days?

A: The passes you buy will allow you access to the event ONLY for the day you have selected.  If you would like to visit multiple days, please see our membership program by clicking here. 

Q: What if I have a question that isn’t answered by visiting awhc.org?

A: You may dial 435-245-6050 to visit with an AWHC staff member during business hours of Mon-Fri 9am-5pm or email heritagecenter@awhc.org.
