Say A Little Prairie: The Ventura County festival celebrating 50 years of a television favorite

Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce
The festival runs for three days

The festival takes place at the Simi Valley location where much of Little House On The Prairie was filmed.

It was set in Minnesota, but it was actually at the Big Sky Movie Ranch in Simi Valley, where much of Little House on the Prairie was filmed.

The Little House Festival runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday and tickets are available from
