Historic Happenings - Pioneer Days

Jul 13, 2012

Pioneer Days South Centennial MuseumIf you are looking to soak up some of the sun this weekend, check out Pioneer Days in Beaverlodge. Take the family out to the South Peace Centennial Museum for the entire weekend. With free camping and daily activities, there is literally something for everyone.

This weekend's activities include wagon rides, blacksmithing, soap making, and a variety of heritage crafts. One of the highlights of Pioneer days is the outdoor clay oven, where staff make bread and cinnamon buns from flour that was ground on site.

The museum, which opened in Canada's Centennial Year, 1967, is open daily through the summer months. Pioneer Days are very special as it features all the working steam-powered equipment, antique cars and trucks, and musical entertainment in keeping with the agricultural theme.

Organizers have scheduled so many different activities there will always be something to make, see or taste at Pioneer Days; we simply cannot list everything that is going on. Take the drive out to the South Peace Centennial Museum which is located just 2 km north of Beaverlodge.
