The Traveling Snake Show

1:00pm - 3:00pm
Hartman Creek State Park

Come learn about the wonderful world of snakes – one of the most misunderstood creatures. We’ll talk about different snakes of the world, including ones you can find right here in Wisconsin. After presenting our snakes, you get a chance to interact with them in a safe, controlled environment. All ages welcome. We will meet at the Enclosed Picnic Shelter near the Amphitheater.

No dogs will be allowed at this program because of the live snakes. Thank you for understanding.

Steve Keller and the Traveling Snake Show has been showing people the magical world of snakes for over 20 years. Steve sees it as “Edutainment” – a combination of education and entertainment. The Snake Show offers experiencing snakes in a safe and friendly environment, while being instructed by experienced handlers. He strives to teach people that snakes are not the vicious creature as portrayed in movies, tv, and stories, but an integral part of our ecosystem, and even beneficial to medical advancements with medicines being made from snake venom! Steve has also been a scout leader, is an avid harmonica player, and starred as Fat Tony in the film, “The Hungry Bull.
