It’s That Time Of Year! Pioneer Days In Michigan City



Michigan City, Ind.— September 22 brings the annual Pioneer Days in Michigan City!

This interactive look into the past is celebrating its 26th year in Creek Ridge County Park, bringing previous visitors and newcomers alike. It’s a unique and educational visit to a very different time in our country’s history, filled with historical re-enactors, crafts, vendors and tons of activities.

Pioneer Days offers a more “hands-on” approach to learning, making it a lot more engaging and creative than other events. The historical re-enactors will be telling stories and showcasing their pioneering skills from wood working, to fur traders and quilters. There will also be historically dressed vendors, offering various goods to bring you back to this different era in American history.

One highlight of this event is to entice its visitors to get into their creative side. The various interactive offerings include candle-dipping, bracelet or necklace building and even ceramics, letting you experience first-hand what it was like to be a pioneer and the skills needed to live in past.  If you just want to take in the scenery of this beautiful 96 acre park you can go on a horse-drawn wagon ride or enjoy many of the delicious foods being offered like fresh apple butter, kettle corn, ham and beans and other pioneer-era foods and snacks.

If you want to try something a bit different from the usual fair or festival outing, come to Pioneer Days in Michigan City. It’s a fun-filled outing that teaches our modern society what the past looked and felt like, offering a more hands-on approach to learning, but making it fun for everyone!
