Schweiger Ranch

The city of Lone Tree is getting into the fall spirit Oct. 10 when it hosts the Fall Festival at historic Schweiger Ranch.

The festival will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the ranch, 10822 Havana St.

“People always love the pumpkin patch and hay wagon rides,” event coordinator Katie Maltais said.

Hay wagon rides will be provided by Colorado Carriage Company. Pumpkins will be $5 each.

There will also be Noah’s Ark Petting Zoo and the Cave of Confusion. The cave is a 3-D maze built inside of a trailer that winds up, down and all around in a twisting, urning, seemingly endless corridor.

Also new this year will be a bluegrass band, Caribou Mountain Collective.

“Last year, Schweiger Ranch had finished a fair amount of refurbishment throughout the property and we added in some signage for self-guided tours,” Maltais said. “It was fun to see things from over 100 years ago and understand how the farm came to be.”

Schweiger Ranch is owned by RidgeGate, which allows the city the use of it for this event.

The city asks that people park in the parking lot behind the green gate on the way to Schweiger Ranch and ride a tractor in. Keep an eye out for signage. There will handicap parking near the event site.
