Hoosier GIVEAWAY: Win a Conner Prairie Family Membership!

This deal has ended.

by Ann-Marie on January 20, 2012

Step back in time at Conner Prairie Interactive History Park in Fishers, Indiana and enjoy the sights and sounds of life in the 1800s!

Hearthside Suppers

My family’s most recent trip to Conner Prairie was for their 1836 Outdoor Adventure last month. My kids were a bit uncertain walking into a schoolhouse with no signs of today’s technology, or even heat!  It was fun role-playing with the hosts at each stop on our path.

Conner Prairie offers something for everyone!

  • Learn about the Science of Football just in time for Indianapolis’ historic opportunity to host the Super Bowl
  • Little ones will enjoy Prairie Tykes, classes offered each Friday with a different age-appropriate theme
  • Enjoy Hearthside Suppers and dine family-style as you learn more about life in the 1800s.

Experience Conner Prairie for yourself for FREE on President’s Day, Monday February 20, 2012 when they are offering free admission from 10am-5pm.

I’d love to share the outdoors, the animals and the space that Conner Prairie offers with my toddler this summer. He’d LOVE it!


Cara Valdivia January 20, 2012 at 8:32 am

My famiy loves doing outdoor activites together. We were very lucky this fall and was able to go to Conner Prairie this past fall for the first time and had such a great time!!! We were all hoping to go up in the balloon but it was too windy that day. We would love to be able to go again to enjoy this new experience.


Rachel Donville January 20, 2012 at 8:43 am

My daughter is reading Little House on teh Prairie series (Age 6) and I think she would really enjoy Conner Prairie experience.


Jen January 20, 2012 at 9:06 am

This is such a neat idea. Since moving to Indy in June, we haven’t even begun to explore all the amazing places the City has to offer. I can’t wait to check this place out. Hopefully we can check out most of the amazing INDY things before we get orders to move once again…


Terri January 20, 2012 at 9:32 am

My kids love everything at Conner Prairie! We discovered this gem when our oldest (who is now 16) went for a field trip there back when he was in 4th grade. So much fun!


Anna January 20, 2012 at 10:12 am

My son attended day camp at Conner Prairie last summer and loved it! He is hoping we’ll be able to sign him up again this summer.


Adrienne Jessie January 20, 2012 at 11:03 am

My family would love the balloon rides. Went on a field trip with my daughter ast year. It was the first time I had ever been to Conner Prairie we all had a great time. It’s a fun place.


Lisa Anderson January 20, 2012 at 1:39 pm

We love going up in the Hot Air Balloon!


Megan Wells January 20, 2012 at 2:33 pm

My daughter loves the Headless Horseman ride the most….but she loves going to see the animals.


Rachel @ The Lazy Christian January 20, 2012 at 2:42 pm

I pretty much want to live at Conner Prairie. All the time. I love the Headless Horseman hayride in the fall, but I just love the history and the setting of the place. Like my own little mini-Colonial Williamsburg right here in Indiana! :)


Michelle January 20, 2012 at 3:01 pm

My 4 year old is obsessed with history–especially pioneers. He wants to be a history teacher when he grows up!


Jen January 20, 2012 at 3:08 pm

We love the Gingerbread house exhibit around the holidays!


Tamara Brusca January 20, 2012 at 3:17 pm

My 2 year old and I can spend HOURS in the Animals Encounter Barn!


Nathan Miller January 20, 2012 at 4:08 pm

I have always wanted to visit Connor Prairie, but I think we would get a kick out of their fall actives and their headless horseman show


Judy January 20, 2012 at 7:30 pm

I love Conner Prairie. We’ve never experienced the Hearthside Dinners, and I think that would be an awesome experience.


Julie A. January 20, 2012 at 8:47 pm

The Headless Horseman event and petting the animals in the barn


Sarah January 20, 2012 at 10:37 pm

We’ve never been, and now that we’re so close I really want to take the boys!!


Natalie k. January 20, 2012 at 11:25 pm

The kiddos would love all of the different exhibits, the outdoor animals, and the holiday specialties too!


Leigh Anne Dearing January 21, 2012 at 8:10 am

We would love to be members at Conner Prairie. We’ve had the opportunity to visit on “free days” but to have the ability to let my four girls (under the ages of 7) explore in our timing would be a gift! They love the outdoor village, especially the school house & doctor house. We haven’t been able to see the new part yet. It’s a place where they all get along (space allows that!) while we actually enjoy what we are learning about.


Denise Wilson January 21, 2012 at 9:00 am

I haven’t been in years, and I didn’t have any kids then. But, I’m sure that my son and daughter would love being outdoors and exploring the “old time” way of life. Would love to win! Thanks for the opportunity!


Jennifer January 21, 2012 at 4:16 pm

We have never made it to Conner Prairie would love to be able to take the family.


Sue January 22, 2012 at 4:33 pm

I love everything about Conner Prarie. Have great memories from going as a child, taking my own children and have always wanted to go for headless horsemen


Beth January 22, 2012 at 7:33 pm

The special events, such as Civil War Days and the Headless Horseman.


Carla January 23, 2012 at 1:58 pm

We went on a girl scout field trip there but missed so much since we only had a few hours to spend. Something my family has discussed doing is one of the Hearthside Suppers at Christmastime but money is too tight. I would love to be able to see the rest of the grounds and check out the discounts.


Becky T January 26, 2012 at 10:49 am

I think they would really enjoy learning about history without realizing they were learning. It’s fun to be immersed in the time period.


Kristin January 26, 2012 at 11:18 am

My boys would love all of the outdoor activites, especially the farm animals! We would love a family membership!!


Kelly January 26, 2012 at 12:31 pm

We’ve never been, but I bet my 3 kiddos would love it!


Kelly January 26, 2012 at 12:32 pm

posted too soon! I think my son would enjoy the farm animals and my daughter would like the indoor area. :)


Mona McCrory January 26, 2012 at 12:56 pm

My daughter loves farm animals! On rainy days both of my children would love the play area inside with the train table.
