The pioneer spirit is alive and well in Tacoma. Want to join in the fun? Come to Old Town Park on Saturday, Sept. 14, where Job Carr Cabin Museum will host the 10th annual Pioneer Days Festival, from 12-4 p.m.
Pioneer Days Festival is a “pay as you can” event, offering many fun hands-on activities and games for children. This is family fun at its best – no electronics required. The festival features folk music and pioneer craft demonstrations, too. Also on site will be Bliss Small Batch Creamery and Sweetly Spun Cotton Candy.
“Pioneer Days Festival is the perfect way to kick off the fall season. We’re thrilled to be offering this to the community for the tenth year running,” commented Christopher Uebelhor, Job Carr Cabin Museum executive director.
Along with the many hands-on “pioneer” activities and crafts, the festival will feature entertaining musical experiences. Podorhythmie will bring the 19th century sounds of stringed instruments, and Cosmo’s Dream will perform traditional and modern folk music. Also, Brass Band Northwest will present a concert at the close of the Festival at 4 p.m. This ensemble will kick off the Classical Tuesdays in Old Town 2019/20 season.
Pioneer Days Festival is supported by Corona Steel, Humanities Washington, Old Town Business & Professional Association, Neil Walter Company, Laboratories Northwest, Collision Specialists, Slavonian Hall, Belina Interiors, and Sprague Pest Solutions.
