23rd Annual Pioneer Day and Grand Opening of the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek
Mark your calendars! The 23rd Annual Pioneer Day will be held Saturday, November 8th, 10am-4pm in Kissimmee, Florida. Take a walk back in time and stroll past pioneer men & women as they work their trades from the 1800’s. Hear real cattlemen share their tales of the challenges of ranching in Florida and find out first hand what a “Florida Cracker” truly is.
Be one of the first to experience the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek! Take a tour through each of the historic buildings and hear the story behind them. Our docents will be dressed the part and are eager to share the history of Osceola County.
Bring the little ones to experience a taste of history. In the Kids Zone, children will be able to listen to stories at 11:30AM and 1:30PM, perform “chores” around the house and enjoy fun crafts!
Enjoy performances by Slickwood at 10AM and Kenyon Lockry at 3PM.
Slickwood will be performing a smooth blend of folk and old school bluegrass. Originally from St. Cloud this band will be a great addition to Pioneer Day this year!
Kenyon Lockry is a veteran to Pioneer Day! He will be performing a mix of Old and New Country.
