Pioneer Days - Crawford

Come see Crawford as a pioneer…

Current Event Information

Crawford Pioneer Days Parade.Maybe you grew up in a small town and remember how much fun it was when there was a community celebration – seemed like the whole town turned out for the big day!

Crawford’s Pioneer Days, like many small town community celebrations, really does hold a type of magic that orchestrated big town events can’t reproduce.

The weekend includes an Old Fashioned Melodrama, benefit live auction, baking contest, Fireworks fund raising dinner, Fireman’s pancake breakfast, awesome parade, haybale races, live music, many craft and food vendors, kids train rides and games in the park and the always hillarious outhouse races.

Round out the fun Saturday evening with an amazing fireworks display over the lake at Crawford State Park… Nothing compares to seeing fireworks reflected in the lake while hearing booms echo off the surrounding mountains! 

Over four decades old, this is a true grass-roots community celebration. No pretension, no glitz… Success is measured not by the size of the crowd, but by how many of the neighbors show up.
