UPDATE: The Texas Heritage Festival at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 11, due to the possibility of inclement weather for the original date. The new date will still feature live music, local artisans, interactive children’s activities and more. You can learn more about this event at www.heardmuseum.org.
NBC 5 and the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary invites you to put your cowboy hat and mosey on over to the Texas Heritage Festival on Saturday, June 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Celebrate all that makes the Lone Star State so spectacular.
Presented by Clif KiD and sponsored by McKinney Community Development Corporation and Baylor Medical Center at McKinney, the Texas Heritage Festival will feature toe-tappin’, knee-slappin’ Western music, local artisans, historical demonstrations, and interactive children’s activities. Guests can rustle up some tasty Texas grub, say “Howdy” to our resident wildlife ambassadors, and explore the Native Texas Butterfly Garden.
Children will love exploring the Heard’s Pioneer Village, comprised of eight pint-sized buildings typical of prairie settlements in the late 1800s—such as a school house, general store, and settlers' cabins!
Event tickets also include general admission to Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary for the day of the event and free parking. Tickets are just $9 for adults, $6 for seniors 60+ and children ages 3 through 12. Admission is free for Heard Museum Members, children ages 2 and under, and McKinney* Residents.
*Free admission for up to 4 persons per McKinney address. Residency must be shown through a water bill listing a McKinney address and a valid photo ID or driver's license with matching name.
