About This Event
Turn back time and experience the simple joys of Missouri’s frontier days at Mountain Grove Pioneer Days. This festival has good old-fashioned fun for the whole family, but you can’t skip town without trying the flapjacks or the ham ‘n beans. The kids can run some energy out in the “stik horsy” contest, but they’ll want to save some of that energy for the sack races and the cookie-stacking contest. Among the most memorable aspects of this festival is the show of pioneer-era craftsmanship through displays like the woodworking competition and the crosscut wood demonstration, along with theatrical pioneer performances.
