Autism Family Day at Linder Farms

October 16 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

RESCHEDULED TO OCT 16TH due to inclement weather!
This is a FREE event for autistic adults/children and their immediate family (spouse/children/parents/siblings), caregivers, or support staff.

However, donations to ASTV are always appreciated! Suggested donation: $3.50 per child for age 6 and younger, and $4.00 per child for ages 7 and up. For youths aged 11 and up participating in the big corn maze add $2.00. Adults are free.

Linder Farms opens early at 3:00 PM for our private event. Not all of the attractions will be open, but it will be more quiet, less crowded, and more low-key for our special families.

**Check in at the ASTV table located next to the pumpkin weigh station/exit area.** Please note that you will need to check in PRIOR to 5:00 PM in order to get in free.

The Linder Farms “daytime field trip” includes these optional activities:
* One small or medium pumpkin for each autistic individual
* Use of straw-bale maze
* Education station to learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin
* A wagon ride
* Use of giant corn box
* Visit to look at farm animals
* A trip through a small portion of the corn maze

After 5:00 PM Linder Farms will be open to the public, and regular admission will be charged. At that time all of the premium attractions will be available as well as the full concessions barn. If you entered during the private event, please feel free to stay past 5:00 PM to enjoy the premium attractions! Tokens for the premium attractions are available for purchase at the main entrance area of Linder Farms.

What is the Buddy Walk? The Buddy Walk has become the premier advocacy event for Down syndrome in the United States. It is also the world’s most widely recognized public awareness program for the Down syndrome community.  The Buddy Walk program was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome and to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October. The name Buddy Walk promotes inclusion between friends of every ability.

The National Buddy Walk Program has grown from 17 Walks in 1995 to over 250 this year!  This global event now has over 295,000 participants raising more than $12.1 million last year. When you support the Treasure Valley Down Syndrome Association (TVDSA) Buddy Walk, you help create awareness and acceptance for people who have Down syndrome in the Treasure Valley.  And by supporting the TVDSA, you help us provide programs and education to families and advocate for those with disabilities.

Support a friend who has Down syndrome or come to meet one that day!
