BROWNS PARK —The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Vernal Field Office
invites the community to attend the Annual Jarvie Ranch Family Fest at the
historical John Jarvie Ranch in Browns Park. The Jarvie Fest will be held
on Saturday, June 19, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The event is hosted by the
Vernal Field Office and everyone is welcome.
The sights and sounds of the late 1880s will entertain visitors to the
historical ranch. There will be activities for all ages such as live
music, cowboy poetry, mountain man camp, raptors, horse-drawn wagon rides,
rope making, leather crafts, etc. There is no entrance fee and no charge
for the day’s activities.
Make up an old fashioned picnic basket and bring along a blanket and
stretch out on the grass at the Jarvie Ranch. Listen to the music and take
an occasional stroll around the historical buildings. If you don’t want to
bring along a picnic lunch, enjoy a $5 lunch served by the Browns Hole
