Twin Cities Spring Babies Festival is back for 2022, with cute baby animals to pet and hold and other family fun activities.
Hugging babies just feels good – especially when they’re baby animals! Twin Cities Festival is BACK this year with a spring baby animals event in which visitors can hold and/or pet baby goats, sheep, bunnies, ducklings, chicks, and ponies!
Additional activities include a kids’ corn pit, a straw bale maze, a hayride, and a kids’ play area. For a little extra you can enjoy pony rides, inflatables, a gunny sack slide, food vendors, and more.
Most of the fun is fully enclosed, so the event is open rain or shine.

- Friday, April 15 – Saturday, April 16
- Saturday, April 23 – Sunday, April 24
- Saturday, April 30 – Sunday, May 1

Plus, the Easter Bunny will be visiting the festival on opening weekend from 12 – 2 pm each day! He will be available for photos and passing out treats (while supplies last) to children 12 and under.
