Pioneer Days Festival

Oct 27, 2017 - Oct 29, 2017
All Day

Pioneer Day first began in 1977 as an annual event held on the last Saturday in October or the first Saturday in November to celebrate the community's history and its earliest pioneer settlers. 

As part of the Pioneer Day celebration, traditional crafts are demonstrated and sold. There is also plenty of entertainment, with everything from the Highlander marching band to carriage tours and antique car parades.

Special events include Pioneer Hour at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday with the naming of this year’s Pioneer of the Year, and at Noon there will be an antique car parade. Pioneer Days Festival activities include crafters, demonstrators, re-enactors, an Antique Car Parade, a free architectural carriage tour, entertainment and much more.
