Pioneer Days
By City of Twentynine Palms

Event Overview

The City of Twentynine Palms invites you to its 84rd Annual Pioneer Days, a family-friendly community celebration!

This action-packed, four-day celebration kicks off on Thursday evening at Luckie Park with the carnival, Little Miss & Master Pageant, and a great lineup of live music. Weekend highlights include the annual Pioneer Days parade, fire fighters pancake breakfast, old timers gathering and chili dinner, plus arm wrestling contests, a beer garden, Kiwanis Club lego challenge, gospel concert, and a wonderful star party and constellation tour at Sky’s The Limit Observatory and Nature Center.

What we know as Pioneer Days began in 1937. In 1938 the celebration was called Pioneer May Day, and in 1940 a parade was added. In 1941 the Chamber of Commerce took it over and changed the date to April. Rationing during World War II postponed further yearly events until 1946 when the celebration was once again held in May. In 1948, the Pioneer Day events moved permanently to October and Western days were adopted as the theme.

Watch for our announcement of the 2020 Pioneer Days theme!
