This event is the museum’s fundraiser to “Raise the Barn.” The barn is the new education building that the museum Docent Council needs to provide desperately needed space for the museum youth education programs including Farm to Fork, Museum Youth Camp, Valley Days and Pioneer School. Sippin’ & Pickin’ in the Park is one of several fundraisers in the docents’ “Raise the Barn” campaign.
