I was raised on a farm, and we had tons of baby lambs every spring. So I totally get the cuteness and fun of snuggling with baby animals. I also love to support the agricultural industry as a whole, so I’m very happy to share with you, all the Baby Animal Days events happening in Utah.
Spot one I’ve missed? Please email me or comment on the post: UtahFamilyFunStuff@gmail.com. I’ll be sure to add it.
As always, I like to work from north to south by county so you have an idea of what’s closest to you, or you can easily determine if you want to take a drive.
Like what you see? Be sure to subscribe to our enewsletter. I’m big on sharing FREE events there and giving you a heads up about upcoming events and early registrations. So don’t miss out!
PLEASE NOTE: During covid restrictions, facemasks and social distancing practices are required at all events. Also, as with all events, the link to the event is the final source for information. Check thoroughly with the venue before making the drive if you have questions. Some events are canceled this year, but we’re keeping them on the list so you know which ones are canceled and so we can easily update them next season.
