Shawnee Prairie Preserve

You’re invited to Prairie Days! Enjoy a weekend celebrating prairies and the pioneer way of life! See apple butter cooked over the fire, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, compete in children’s games, view local artists’ creations, listen to live music and entertainment. Enjoy folk music from local artists, a unique production by the Darke Co. Civic Theater, or just sit a spell with our pioneer volunteers in the log house. Take a stroll through the 18th century encampment, watch a tomahawk & knife throwing competition, and what is a festival without food?! Participate in a pie baking contest. Take a stroll among the non-profit food vendors for a wide range of tasty treats, or enjoy fresh produce from Downing’s Fruit Farm. Try your luck at the annual basket raffle and so much more!  Admission and parking are FREE.
