Edgerton Pioneer Days
September 12, 2014 - September 14, 2014
Each fall, Edgerton residents are joined by those from surrounding areas to celebrate the community’s history. All ages gather in downtown Edgerton the second weekend in September each year for the free three-day event.
Organized by members of the volunteer Pioneer Days committee, with sponsorships and assistance from area businesses and organizations, the festival features arts, crafts and food vendors, one of the largest parades in Platte County, live entertainment, artisans and demonstrations, shootouts by re-enactors, pony rides, a variety of contests, and good old-fashioned fun for the entire family.
Area youngsters compete for the title of Little Mr./Miss Pioneer Days. Other events have included a co-ed softball tournament, chain saw carving demonstrations, fund raisers sponsored by local organizations, cake walks, a fish fry and more fun than you can shake a Grove Creek stick at.
Admission, parking and most of the entertainment are free.
