Q: Do I have to buy tickets online?

A: Tickets will be limited to this event. To make sure you have a spot reserved for the day of your choice, we encourage you to purchase tickets in advance online.  

Q:  What do you mean by more animals and more space?

A:  It means literally more animals over a larger, more spread-out configuration of our spacing at the AWHC.  It is our intention to provide each household with a chance to interact with animals in a more personal setting.  More viewing and interactive areas are planned for chicks, ducklings, calves, kids (baby goats), lambs, baby turtles, etc.  More space will be provided for the specialty animals to be viewed and displayed.  All in an effort to provide a more memorable outdoor event for you and your family to enjoy.

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: On our main festival days (April 1-3 and 7-10) we will have food vendors and concessions available. On April 5 & 6 limited concessions will be available.

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 are one of our most popular attractions for young children. 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 or email heritagecenter@awhc.org.
