The past comes alive at Pioneer Village Museum for two fun-filled days every July! Heritage Days is one of the Museum's largest and most popular events.

While here, be sure to:

  • Make ropes in the Agriculture Building

  • See wood carving and woodworking in the Woodwork Shop

  • See blacksmithing at the Blacksmith Forge

  • Watch classic printing at the Print Shop outside the Norwegian Room

  • Check out spinning, treadle sewing, crank sewing, button making, and rug weaving in the Fiber Arts building

  • See clothes washing and candle making between the Caboose and Windmill

  • Enjoy Hungry Hollow demonstrations between the Pioneer Cabin and driveway

  • Watch a Sheep to Shawl demonstration between the Joliet School and Building 14

  • Get started or learn more about genealogy with the Blue Hills Genealogical Society in the Town Hall

The Pioneer Kitchen will be open from 10 AM - 4 PM both days for lunch and snacks, a tractor parade will be held on both days at 2 PM, and both days will feature live music (Dylann Martinson - Saturday, Gospel Notes - Sunday) in the Pavilion from 11 AM - 3 PM. On Sunday, Pastor Ron Krout will hold a church service in the Ebenezer Church at 10:30 AM.

We look forward to having you join us!
