Summer at the Village 2024

July 1 - July 27, 2024

Join Sauder Village for three themed weeks of fun in the sun. Summer at the village kicks off with a moo during “Cow Sauder Village, Summer at the Village, Cow, Cow WeekWeek” where you can have udder-ly ridiculous fun helping prepare ice cream, cheese, and making butter of your own. Don’t forget to catch our milking demonstrations and have a chance to meet our livestock up close.

The following week we will work hard and play harder during “Work and Play week.” Help Sauder Village thrive by taking part in 19th century chores and learning the etiquette of the time, then, follow it up with games and activities that spotlight how families and friends had fun on the frontier.

Finally, don the hat of a naturalist and explore the world around you during “Nature Week.” Meet the bees responsible for the beautiful flowers across Sauder Village’s grounds; Explore the gardens as they begin to explode with produce and meet Johnny Appleseed as he passes through town and shares stories about his adventures. Don’t forget to visit the Nature Center and Wetlands to put your newfound knowledge to the test.

It all ends in a grand finale on July 27th, where we will highlight activities from every week and welcome the High Wheel Bicycle Club to display their bikes on the village green. 

We encourage you to share your experiences to social media with the hashtag #summer@saudervillage24
