The Lake Wales History Museum will present the 45th Annual Pioneer Days Festival on Saturday and Sunday, October 23 & 24, 2021, which is a celebration of Lake Wales’ history and heritage.  Located along the shores of Lake Wailes Park, the free community festival features a heritage village that includes dozens of historical demonstrations of pioneer camps and early American trades.  The public is welcome to experience, learn, share and buy hand-crafted goods from these vendors along with more than 60 craft market vendors.  Average attendance is 7,500—10,000 individuals.

The festival honors pioneers from the past and presents an annual recognition award to a notable resident of historical contributions to the community during the festival with community organizations, antique tractors and cars, live music and entertainment, festival food, beer & wine.  Families can also enjoy the Pumpkin Patch with pumpkins for sale, fall craft stations, old-fashioned games, a corn crib, hay piles, photo station, and face painting.
