About Pioneer Days

This interactive look into the past celebrates its 30th year of Pioneer Days hosted by LaPorte County Parks. This event brings previous visitors and newcomers alike out to Creek Ridge County Park! It’s a unique and educational visit to a very different time on our country’s history, filled with tons of activities. As visitors enter the park they will encounter a taste of pioneer history and smell the aroma alike. You will see historically dressed vendors, offering various goods to bring you back to this different era in American history. The various interactive offerings include candle-dipping, bracelet or necklace building, and ceramics, letting you experience first-hand what it was like to be a pioneer and the skills needed to live in the past. While visiting with historically clad vendors as they tell stories and showcase their pioneering skills. Enjoy the many Pioneer demonstrators such as wood working and quilters. We have new activities to try your hands at like weaving, log cabin building and so much more. Pioneer Days will be open from 10am to 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday. An admission fee is paid at the gate–$2 for adults, $1 for children or seniors, 4 and under is free.
