Fall Festival at 17 Mile House

October 14, 2017

Enjoy FREE family fun at the Arapahoe County Fall Festival. Celebrate our County’s agricultural heritage and step back in time. 

The Fall Festival is hosted at the historic 17 Mile House Farm Park, 8181 S. Parker Road, Centennial, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The house is a 155-year old property, which once served as an inn for pioneers traveling on wagon trails to Denver, and was a working farm for more than a century. The 17 Mile House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Enjoy live music, picking out your favorite pumpkin and a scenic hayride. Festival goers also can try their luck at gold panning, milking June the cow or learning the art of blacksmithing. Learn from Trapper Johnny and enjoy tasty food. See the Nature’s Educator’s Birds of Prey and take a tour of the farmhouse.

Former residents of the house will be on-site to tell stories of their days living on the farm. The Cherry Creek Valley Historical Society will offer the history of the house and its significance to the Old West.
