Welcome Fall with heritage children's activities like scarecrow making, pumpkin patch picking, candle making and gold panning. Behold steam-powered line shafts, player pianos, letterpresses, printing presses and more! Admission is FREE for the whole family October 4–5 and children with a Steam Train ticket get to pick out a free pumpkin from our Harvest Pumpkin Patch on Bear Mountain.


Harvest & Steam themed activities include 'Make & Take' Scarecrows, Blacksmith and Print Shop demonstrations, gold panning, candle making, hand car racing and much more. 






Our New CD is finally here!!!

We are really excited about finally burnin' the pants onto disc.  Have a listen to some of the tunes and check out the link to download the CD on the sidebar!

Who IS Jimmy Chickenpants? No one really knows, but the band hails from the Santa Cruz area. They traditionally put the 'hick' in 'chicken' with music that combines bluegrass, newer-grass, jazz-grass, and original-grass, otherwise known as "Poultry In Motion". Jimmy's influences apparently include Bill Monroe, Gillian Welch, Bela Fleck, Duke Ellington, and most significantly, Rocky the Petaluma Free Range Chicken.Jimmy Chickenpants is not on any "No Fly" lists, as far as we know, so please check the schedule, and come enjoy some “Free Range Pickin’”!
