Fun Family Festivities Planned for Celebration, Presented by Capital One

Celebrate the new and improved Maymont Farm at a grand re-opening on Sunday, March 26 from 12 to 4pm.

The Farm at Maymont will open its barn doors once again after a year-long renovation project, funded through the Spirit of Generosity capital campaign. The farm entrance and barn have been closed since mid-April 2016 for the construction. Improvements and expansion at the site will provide new guest amenities and create new program opportunities. Projects include a complete renovation of the barn interior and additional outside paddocks; a new classroom building with two large rooms for educational programs and birthday parties; a new play area; expansion and structural improvements to restroom facilities; a new welcome area; a new hand-washing station; and an expanded parking lot. In addition, a rain garden and bio-retention area, funded in part by grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the Virginia Environmental Endowment, will introduce OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAguests of all ages to beautiful and creative ways to make a positive impact on the environment.

Guests can feed the farm animals, watch animal training with the goats, greet Percy the donkey, take selfies with the animals and a tractor, meet Richmond mascots including Nutzy the Flying Squirrel and Seymour the Friendly Dinosaur from C-MOR (Children’s Museum of Richmond), watch juggling performances by Jonathan Austin, ride a trackless train, adopt a Maymont animal, support the farm with an engraved paver, and more.
