In the Quad Cities, we are only a short drive away from the magic of real family farms.

We know that many of our readers actually live on or near farms. But there are a lot of us who live “in town,” and who rarely have the chance to experience life on a farm.

Riding in combines, planting seeds, and feeding farm animals aren’t a way of life for most of us.

That’s why we’re so excited for our 2016 Family Night – we can’t wait for this special Family Night on the Farm with the Henry County Farm Bureau.

It’s the perfect time of year to check out a working family farm and learn more about where our food comes from. (And meet the hard-working folks who help us feed our families.) Our friends and sponsors are bringing so many fun and unique experiences for parents and kids alike.

Trust us. This is a night you (and your kids) don’t want to miss. (And it’s only open to the first 200 people to get tickets, so act fast.)

Wondering what all the fuss is about? Here’s what you can expect. (Although we also have a few surprises up our sleeves.)


Henry County Beef Association will be grilling hot dogs/hamburgers. You can round out your dinner with salad, beans, chips and cookies.
To quench your thirst (it is summer in the country), enjoy a glass of milk (from Prairie Farms), water or lemonade.


There will be activities and fun to keep everyone entertained, including:
  • Kids Corner – with a corn pool, coloring pages, seed planting, petting zoo and butter making with the Henry County Farm Bureau.
  • Large equipment – climb and explore working farm machinery. (What kids don’t love tractors?)
  • Magic – enjoy fun magic with T.J. Regal, the Quad Cities Magician.
  • Nature activities.
  • Photos – get a family photo in front of a tractor from Courtney Finch Photography.
  • Crafts – make and take a mason jar fairy light with Cornerstone Dentistry.
  • Music – enjoy a live radio broadcast from Rewind 93.9.


Enter to win a variety of great giveaways. And each family will go home with a special farm swag bag (stuffed with goodies) and a pumpkin plant to grow in your your own yard.


Early-bird tickets are only $5/person plus processing (ages 2 and up) and include dinner and all the activities and fun you can handle! (Tickets go up to $8/person next Friday, so grab them now. )

There’s no charge for baby/young child entry only – no food, drink or giveaways – ideal for children under 2.

This event is limited to 200 people, so act fast to enjoy this unique event.
