Solar Fest at Idle Creek Farms

On April 8, 2024 a rare total solar eclipse will occur, providing us with 4 minutes and 23.5 seconds of total darkness in the middle of the day!

At Idle Creek Farms, we're celebrating this once-in-a-lifetime event with a family friendly festival to match the epic memories you'll make.

This event includes optional overnight accommodations, the opportunity to camp in one of our fields or on our creek, and access to our attractions (see below).

Camp overnight with your family in one of our beautiful fields. Campers can come as early as April 4 and stay as long as April 9. Shared campfires available. 


Creek-Side Campsites

Upgrade your camping experience and pitch your tent directly on Idle Creek! These premium campsites are gorgeous, you can't beat them. (SOLD OUT)


Farm Animals

Your family will love our horses, mini-donkeys, baby goats, cows and all the other furry friends that live at Idle Creek. Feeding and holding experiences available.


Wagon Rides

Take a wagon ride around the farm and along the creek. The wagon is also available to help you move your gear from your car to your campsite.


Food and Drinks

You can expect an array of delicious treats while you're at the farm. Lemonade, funnel cakes, BBQ, tacos and beer are just a few of the offering you'll find. (Campers can also bring their own food, if they prefer)

Jump Pad

Kids leap for joy on our giant Jump Pad!

This attraction doesn't allow shoes, so keep that in mind when packing.
