Frequently Asked Questions
Along with selecting the day you’d like to visit, you select an entrance time as well. This is to help us manage the flow of guests and to help things not get overcrowded. There is a certain amount of grace period around that time, if you need to arrive a little earlier or a little later, that should be fine.
- The Kids’ Corral – with climbing stumps, live animals, hay stacks, game tables.
- The Tractor Ride – – ride the hay wagon through the lights.
- The Nativity Play – kids can participate in regular showings of the Christmas story where they dress us as the Bible characters and play the parts.
- The Cozy Barn – warm up inside the barn enjoy some piano music, or sit down and work on a craft with your kiddo, or read them a great kid’s book.
- Parking – No extra fee to park on our property of course!
For sale at the farm we have hot beverages (cocoa or cider), a s’mores kit for roasting by the fire, a sugar cookie kit that you can decorate in the barn, a selection of kid’s craft kits, and plenty of Christmas gift options for sale in the shop. For payment we take credit cards and cash. No checks are accepted at this time.
We have tried to include activities that are fun for the whole family! The older kids might enjoy the bigger games in the game shed, like the ring game and carpet ball. We have added a number of activities in our ‘game corral’ and tent for the 2023 season. Adults and kids alike have seemed to really enjoy decorating a sugar cookie and sipping on hot cocoa while going on the hayride too.
That’s completely up to you but probably a couple hours. Most of our guests spend about an hour and a half to two hours to enjoy all the activities.
Our event mainly takes place outdoors and it’s best to wear layers and prepare for Colorado weather. We do have several places to warm up including a fire pit, several outdoor heaters, and the barn stays warm with our wood burning stove. The terrain isn’t completely flat so wear boots or comfortable walking shoes. We also have porta-potties available for our guests to use.
Being located directly off of Burgess Road makes us easy to find… however, you will need to pay special attention to the address numbers and be looking for our sign to make sure you turn down our driveway and not our neighbors. We have a large lit up Star of Bethlehem at the entrance off of Burgess Road. The WAZE app takes you directly to our farm.
If possible, please have your party arrive in as few vehicles as possible due to some parking limitations.
Parking is included with your tickets. Just follow the signs all the way back to the parking area and look for the parking attendants that will direct you to a space.
Due to the limited about of space each evening we are only able to honor the reservations that are booked in advance. However, if we are not at full capacity or if you have an addition to your party that you didn’t know of when you booked, then we can sell those tickets at the door.
We will try to stay open for our scheduled nights, even if it’s snowing. We will only cancel if the weather makes it unsafe to travel to or be at the farm. In those cases, we will email those ticket holders to let them know of the change and allow them to choose another date. If your own life circumstances cause you to have to cancel, you’re welcome to gift your tickets to someone else, or with at least 72 hours notice, we will reschedule you for an open time slot at a later date if available. Please see our Terms and Conditions.
You may bring any snacks and drinks for your family. Don’t forget to dress warmly. You may bring strollers for your kiddos.
We do not allow any pets at Forest Bend. Also, all firearms are prohibited.
At Forest Bend you will receive a special wooden token with each admission that you can redeem for one of a number of different options at the farm. A token can be redeemed for a cup of hot cocoa or cider, kid’s craft or cookie decorating kit, or a s’more’s making kit. And if you’d like to give the family more tokens, those can be purchased inside the barn at the store.
Yes you can! Feel free to purchase a gift card for your loved ones here.
This is mighty kind of you!
We do not offer discounts to groups.
For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
