Spring Farm Day


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


On May 12, 2018, enjoy one of Frying Pan Farm Park’s most anticipated events — Spring Farm Day!

This annual opportunity, hosted 10 am to 3 pm, is packed with family fun including live cow milking, sheep shearing, and antique farm equipment demonstrations. Plus, there are plenty of hands-on opportunities too, like games, arts and crafts, a corn bin (like a sandbox, but with kernels!), and more.

While there, the farm animals, including the spring babies are a can’t-miss! Plus, enjoy a visit to the playground, meet family-friendly vendors (new this year!), nibble on fair food, and even enjoy a carousel and wagon ride ($3 each)!

Admission is available online or on-site the day of the event (children under 2 are free). Plan ahead and save $1 by pre-purchasing here (recommended).

Frying Pan Farm Park (FPFP) is part of a historical community dating back to the early 1700’s. Located in the Floris community of Herndon, VA, the area was known as Frying Pan from 1726 to 1892.

This working farm shows mid-century farm life, from the 1920’s to the 1950’s, when farming technology became available, including the tractor, dairy milking machines, mechanical bailers, and more.

Today, families are invited to enjoy an afternoon filled with farm-inspired fun. Visit the animals and farming exhibits, and be sure to bring a picnic and enjoy the playground, carousel (seasonal), tractor rides (seasonal), nature trails, and more!

FPFP also boasts an Equestrian Center, walking trails, and a general store, as well as classes, camps, and opportunities open to the community.

Admission to the farm and parking are usually free, with the exception of special events like Spring Farm Day.

Frying Pan Farm Park is located at 2709 West Ox Rd., Herndon, VA 20171.
