During Conner Prairie at Dawn, visitors will be able to take photos, paint, sketch, hike, meditate, do yoga, or simply enjoy our beautiful grounds before the park opens to the public. Capture the sun rising over our historical covered bridge, identify native birds, animals and insects, marvel at the morning fog rolling off the historic prairie, burn calories on our Nature Walk, or just enjoy the peace and tranquility of Conner Prairie’s beautiful landscape. This event is for adults 18 and older. Admission is $10, which includes access to our grounds from 7 a.m.-10 a.m. For those wanting to explore our historic grounds after 10 a.m., you may purchase full-price, general admission tickets for $15.
