Frequently Asked Questions

Will all of the animals listed be available to pet throughout the day?

Yes. Occasionally, some animals may not be available for interaction the day of the event due to the animal’s schedule or personality.

Is Animal Days the same at every location? Or do some locations offer different animals, activities, etc.?

The animals, activities, and core demonstrations are consistent from one location to another. Some of the local vendor displays and exhibits may vary based on what providers and artisans are participating in this year’s events.

Where do I find the specific times for demonstrations I am interested in attending?

Please refer to the activities section on the homepage for demonstration times. Or feel free to contact us for more information anytime.

Do you ever cancel Animal Days due to unexpected weather, etc.? And what happens if I purchased my ticket(s) for that day?

While canceling Animal Days is unlikely, if we unexpectedly do have to cancel a day of the event, we will either change the day(s) of the event or provide you with a full refund.

Is Animal Days open throughout the year?

Animal Days comes around ONE time a year, during the springtime. It’s offered at three different locations in Idaho – Burley, Nampa, and Eastern Idaho.
