Pioneer Day at The Grove National Historic Landmark

Pioneer Day is Saturday, June 22! Our exciting annual celebration allows guests to explore and experience life as a pioneer. The event is free to the public and draws hundreds of visitors each summer. We would love to have you join us to help visitors experience pioneer life. We'll guide you in picking out an historical costume from our array of stylish period fashions. If you have your own costume, please feel free to come attired. Gentlemen will be asked to wear blue jeans or khaki pants to start their historical costume. Pioneer Day is a wonderful opportunity for parents and grandparents to volunteer with children and grandchildren. Volunteers must be 14 years old to volunteer without a parent or guardian. Volunteers under 18 will need a waiver signed by a parent or guardian—you’ll receive the waiver after you sign up.

Volunteer slots are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. You are welcome to sign up for one slot or for the entire day. We open to the public at 10 a.m. and ask volunteers to arrive at 9 a.m. to choose a costume and to learn or review the pioneer skills you'll need for the day. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask. All volunteers will receive a lunch voucher.

The Grove is beginning a renovation project to update and modernize the Interpretive Center. The Interpretive Center will be closed beginning June 2 and will re-open in the fall. During renovations the Welcome Center will be based in the Archives and activities at The Grove will be in full force. While the renovations are proceeding several animals will be housed in the Blacksmith shop and remain on display.  Other animals will be off display during construction.

We look forward to seeing you!
