Spring Festival at Kensington Metropark Farm Center in Milford

Ring in spring with family activities at Kensington Metropark Farm Center’s annual Spring Festival April 21-22, 2018.

Put the spring back into your step at the family-friendly Kensington Metropark Spring Festival on April 21-22, 2018, in Milford, where you’ll be greeted by baby animals as well as cows, lambs, pigs and chickens.

While there will be spring babies to get acquainted with, the main event of the weekend will be the sheep shearing. Stop by the farm and take a tour to watch the sheep get their annual haircuts and learn more about animals in the process.

Rosco the Clown will also be in attendance to serve up balloon animals and laughs.

Take a hayride or stop by the Kensington Living History Village to learn more about early pioneers, too. The Living History Village boasts an authentic hearth and offers blacksmithing, woodworking, fiber arts and cooking demonstrations throughout the year.

Admission to the event is also free, but a Metropark parking permit is required to enter the park. Prices are as follows: $35/standard annual admission, $21/seniors or $10/daily admission.
