Learn & Play Day

July 21 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Kids of all ages can spend the day playing and learning at the John Deere Pavillion. At this free event, you learn about life on a farm, see what it’s like to work on a construction site, explore the world of forestry and more.

For hands-on fun, kids can test their driving skills in a battery-powered Gator™ obstacle course or put their muscles to work in a pedal-powered tractor pull.

Other special exhibits include a petting zoo, a construction zone to test toy equipment in sand and an innovation station where kids are inspired to build equipment and buildings out of Mega Blocks.

Kids who complete all the “chores” in Little Johnny’s Farm, including milking a cow (not a real one), will receive a “Deere Dollar” they can cash in for a special treat.

Blacksmith demonstrations will also be conducted on site throughout the day.

A variety of informational booths from ag-related organizations including the Rock Island Farm Bureau, Rock Island 4H & Extension, Midwest Dairy Association and Country Corner will also be featured.

The John Deere Pavilion’s Learn & Play Day is open to the public and is free of charge.

For more information, please call 309-765-1000.
