South Valley families are invited to step back in time and experience the rich cowboy culture of California at Henry W. Coe State Park on June 2. The annual Ranch Days event offers a unique opportunity for children and adults to immerse themselves in the traditions and activities of the Old West.

Visitors can try their hand at roping and horseback riding, learning the skills that were essential to cowboys on the ranch. Kids will delight in churning their own butter and spinning wool, gaining an appreciation for the craftsmanship of yesteryear. The park’s stream provides a refreshing spot for families to cool off and play.

Throughout the day, attendees will be entertained by the impressive talents of a sheep dog as it skillfully herds sheep. Children can also interact with friendly chickens and goats, creating unforgettable memories.

The event culminates with a mouthwatering hot-dog BBQ, giving families a chance to relax and savor the flavors of the Old West.

While admission to Ranch Days is free, there is a charge for parking. The event is made possible through the generous support of the Pine Ridge Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and enhancing Henry W. Coe State Park.

Don’t miss this chance to step into the boots of a cowboy and create lasting memories with your family. Join the folks at Henry W. Coe State Park on June 2 for a day filled with fun, learning, and adventure.
