Pioneer Days will be held at the Daniel Boone Home in Defiance, Missouri September 17-18, 2011. During the festival, visitors can speak with those participating in an early 19th century frontier encampment to learn more about our history as it pertains to westward expansion.
See 19th century costumes, weapons and items used in pioneer families’ homesteads. With demonstrations throughout the fair, learn how early tools were used, trades were accomplished and how early settlers took care of their families . Parents should be aware that a black powder shoot will be taking place as well, so that they can prepare younger children for the loud sound of gunfire. Otherwise, children will be fascinated with all the activities and games that are set up just for them in the Kids Village. Even Daniel Boone “himself” will be on hand to offer fun facts about history.
The Pioneer Days festival takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both September 17th and 18th. Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $6 for children. This includes admission to the Daniel Boone Home and The Boonefield Village. Pioneer Days is located at 1868 Hwy F in Defiance, Missouri, just one hour from downtown St. Louis.
