Pioneer Day

Pioneer Day is held the second Saturday in November.

Volunteers and re-enactors demonstrate settler life in Stephen F. Austin’s colony during the 1820s and early 1830s. Old-fashioned crafts, demonstrations, and period re-enactments bring the homestead to life.

Historians and re-enactors needed! (PDF)
