Agricultural Heritage Day - 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. - Saturday, August 7

Please join us at the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center for our salute to agriculture.  Though Virginia City had the silver and Lake Tahoe had the lumber, the Carson Valley had the greatest treasure of all… Food!  From beef, lamb, chickens, eggs, milk, butter and flour we were the go to source for the food that fed our state.  Visit our museum and see our exhibits portraying the rich ranching and agricultural heritage of the Carson Valley.

We’ll have games, activities and prizes for the whole family including the announcement of the winner of the Name our Horse Contest.
