Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center invites the public to its annual fall festival on Friday, Oct. 6, from 5-8 p.m.
Fall Fest: Music ‘cross the Meadow will feature activities about Nebraska’s amazing prairie plants and wildlife for all ages, as well as music from several local musicians and musical groups.
Most of the activities will go on all through the evening, but the main attraction will be the live music. At 5 p.m., Lincoln’s Early Music Consort will play in the Grand Prairie Hall, welcoming guests with music from the Middle Ages and before.
Music starts on our outside prairie stage at 5:30 p.m. with Downtown Dave and Papa Bob, and later, Lincoln’s own Jubilee. In addition, there will be wagon rides through the tallgrass prairie, art activities and both a “freaky forest” and “tallgrass maze.”
We encourage folks to bring their own picnic and blanket to start the evening, and we’ll have free custard for dessert from our friends at Culver’s. More information can be found at springcreekprairie.audubon.org.
The program is open to the public, and no reservations are required. A $5 suggested donation is appreciated. Kids 12 and under are free.
