Join the Accokeek Foundation this May for the annual Lattes with Lambs barnyard festival. This year, we present a hybrid event that lets YOU build-your-own Lattes adventure. Sign up for barnyard tours, purchase a festival kit, or follow along with online entertainment.
Whatever you choose, it's going to be a groovy (and cute!) time.
Choose Your Lambapalooza Activities:
SOLD OUT: Barnyard Tours
Meet and greet the new lambs in Piscataway Park! Each hour-long guided tour will introduce you to the new lambs and calves born on site this year, as well as let you reconnect with some of your old farm favorites like Sir Nigel the Hog Island sheep and Mayor Birdie the American Milking Devon cow.
Meet the Author:
