Come celebrate the life of a true American original!

Hey, Friends . . . last year, we invited you to ditch the jingoism and join us on July 4th for a different kind of party, and it was so much fun that we’re doing it again!

Once again, we celebrate the life and legacy of American humorist Rube Goldberg with a party and contest!  This time, we observe his 140th birthday on the weekend before (Saturday, July 1st), so everyone can stay up as late at they want!

Bring your own Rube Goldberg machine, build one here, or just kick back and enjoy the scene at our beautiful rural refuge. This year, we’ll also have a gallery for people to show off their own wacky machine designs, so dream it, draw it, and bring your own machine blueprint!  Want to join in but don’t know how to get started?  Try this year’s Newbie Challenge!

Do come see us!
We’d love to see you!

Bookings no longer allowed on this date.
