Jackalope Ranch will prepare a selection of tasty BBQ favorites in addition to their popular restaurant menu. Patrons are invited to shop for early holiday gifts before lunch or dinner, or relax on the Palapas Patio for happy hour and be captivated by the splendor of the garden of glass.

Attendees will be offered chances to win a piece of Walker & Bowes art glass; entry forms for the opportunity drawing will be at the Rabobank table on Lucky’s Lawn. The lucky winners will not need to be present at the drawing.  This exclusive event will last only two days and these glass gems are sure to sell out quickly.  Jackalope Ranch is located at 80400 Highway 111, one block east of Jefferson.
