Our biggest event of the year is October 7—Prairie Harvest Fest!
Join us August 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., for our Heat of Summer (socially-distanced) celebration and experience the creation of chalk masterpieces that honor the prairie. Plus bring out your inner artist with our interactive art activities.
Art-Focused Activities: Local artists from Art Hot Spot Studios creating real-time chalk art, including a recreation of the famous Harvey Dunn painting, “The Prairie is My Garden” and art pieces inspired by the new High Prairie Park Hearth Wall.
Express your own creativity and try your hand at coloring fun chalk drawings of prairie-inspired icons. We will provide individually-packaged chalk for each family to use and keep after the event.
Celebrate Summer with Food Trucks and Cool Treats from California Wrap Runner, Em’s Ice Cream Truck and The Real Deal Food Truck, and live music from David Lawrence and The Spoonful!
Cool off with misting stations, and tours of 13 air-conditioned model homes with summer beverages at each sales center.
Prizes and More: Register with the Painted Prairie App for a chance to win fabulous prizes such as a cool mountain getaway, and a bar top ice maker.
