Prairie Jubilee

9/28/2024 | Prairie State Park | Mindenmines, MO

Come on out to Prairie State Park on Saturday, Sept. 28, to celebrate the tallgrass prairie during the biennial Prairie Jubilee event. Take part in activities such as a living history loop where you can interact with interpreters and others to learn what it was like to live on the prairie; learn to use an atlatl; observe 19th-century cooking; see horses and wagons; and listen to the sounds of the prairie. Also, be sure to take a ride out to see the bison and try some bison for lunch, followed by homemade desserts. During the event, you will get to visit with people from the Missouri River Bird Observatory, the Missouri Prairie Foundation, the Missouri Department of Conservation, Fort Scott National Historic Site and George Washington Carver National Monument who partner to protect and preserve the tallgrass prairie.

All traffic is required to enter from the north, as we have one-way traffic on Northwest 150th Lane. Come in via Liberal, Missouri.

Due to the unique and rare diversity of life preserved at Prairie State Park, pets are not allowed on park trails, EXCEPT for Path of the Earth People and Path of the Sky People. This includes during the Prairie Jubilee. Bison graze freely in the park, and this regulation protects both you and your pet. You are welcome to bring your pet to the park's campground and picnic area, but must follow Missouri State Parks' pet rules. This applies to all types of pets except service animals assisting people with disabilities.

This event is free and sponsored by Missouri State Parks.

Event Time: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
