Dinosaur Day Science Fest in Rocklin

Rocklin, CA--Dinosaur Day Science Fest is back. That's right, the Sierra College Natural History Museum is once again hosting this incredibly popular event.

 Over the course of the past 16 years Dinosaur Day has brought thousands, upon thousands of the young and young-at-heart to the Museum to share a love of all things science and, of course, dinosaurs. 

There will be so much to do at this year's event! Like live animal shows and scientists blowing up watermelons. Get officially checked for cooties! Kids can decorate their own Dino Cookie and make a poster. Young would-be scientists will be able to make their own slime too! The Museum will be holding Planetarium Shows. (Please note that there are limited tickets available for this event). There will be silent auctions and drawings. Take a spin on the DinoWheel to test your dinosaur knowledge and a chance to win prizes. There will be geocaching and face painting too. Meet actual paleontologists and watch them prepare real fossils. Kids can hunt for fossils in our fossil sandbox. There will be over 20 activities for young explorers.  

Make a day of it and bring a picnic lunch to the event, or better yet, let the Sierra College Science Club do the cooking and purchase a freshly made BBQ lunch. Big Spoon Yogurt will be dishing out some yummy treats for desert.  

This year's event will be held on Sunday, May 4th from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, at the Sierra College Rocklin Campus, located at 5000 Rocklin Road in Rocklin, CA.  

Tickets may be purchased at the event or in advance at, search Dinosaur Day. We suggest that you purchase tickets early to avoid lines on the day of the event. Parking at the event is free.

  •  Adults: $10.00
  • Children ages 4-12, $7:00

The Sierra College Natural History Museum is pleased to be able to host this event again this year. The event has held a special place for young and old alike in the region and the proceeds all go to benefit the Museum.
