Event Description

Join the Friends of Stricker for our annual Mother’s Day Picnic! It all happens on Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 11) at the historic Rock Creek Stage Station and Stricker Homesite, which is located at 3715 E 3200 N in Hansen. The site will be open from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. for guided tours where you can walk along the Oregon Trail and learn about life on the site when it was a stop on the Kelton Freight Road. You can also tour the Stricker home and see how people lived in the early 1900s. Lunch will be served from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and will be catered by Dana Nichols and Got’m Catering. The menu for the picnic is an old-fashioned fried chicken lunch. The price for lunch is $12 per person or $10 for seniors and kids under 10. All proceeds from the event go toward preserving the Stricker site.

Along with touring the site and having a delicious picnic lunch, you can listen to the Vawser Brothers as they provide some toe-tapping musical entertainment. The Oregon Trail Muzzleloaders will be on hand with historical demonstrations, including tomahawk throwing. There will be classic cars and antique tractors on site as well.
