2017 Fall High Plains History Festival

Teachers and students love learning and experiencing history at our 8-acre museum!

The presenter was knowledgeable and engaging. My class was engaged the entire time.

Fantastic and informative presentation.

I have been visiting Centennial Village for years; this was by far the best visit ever.

I love how the kids actually believed the presenter was from the 1800s.

Since 1992, the City of Greeley Museums has produced a living history festival for elementary students with interactive elements and demonstrations illustrating life in Northern Colorado and the American West in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

In addition to touring our 8-acre facility, students may also experience the following activities: corn shelling and grinding, scrub board laundry, chuck wagon cooking and baking, rope-making, Native American games, cowboys, blacksmithing, printing, quilting, and more.

Admission for students and chaperones in the Greeley/Evans School District 6 is $5/person. For students and chaperones in other school districts, it is $6/person. Teachers (one per 10 children) and bus drivers are admitted free. This event is geared toward 4th graders, but we can accommodate children from 2nd grade through 5th grade.

Remember, Centennial Village is an “open-air museum” and the High Plains History Festival occurs rain or shine, so prepare accordingly. We only cancel the event due to dangerous travel conditions and weather. Due to high demand and limited space for this festival, we require cancellations be made at least two weeks prior to the event. A $50 cancellation fee will be applied to cancellations made within 2 weeks of the events.
