Event Description

Visit the 1850 Pioneer Farm for a recreated pioneer wedding! Travel out to the farm in time to meet Living History Farms’ June bride as you join the 1850 Farm staff for a wedding celebration, including a wedding ceremony and cake for the guests! Weddings brought the pioneer community together for traditional foods and fun. Discover the most popular gifts for a pioneer bride, help in the “shivaree,” and play a good-natured, very noisy prank on the wedding couple. Visitors will become part of the day’s fun, with ceremonies at 11:00 and 1:30.

Be sure to allow enough time to ride the tractor cart over to the west side farm sites. The wedding celebrations will take place at the 1850 Pioneer Farm.
