We need everyones help


Pioneer Days is unique among events in that  we're not an organization that does Pioneer Days as a fundraiser.

Pioneer Days is only about community members putting together a party for the community.

All the different events are about giving as many people as possible a reason to take part in Pioneer Days.

Our "members" are the people and organizations of Englewood and without our members help a dozen of us who work to organize it would be left as the only volunteers and a lot of these events would stop happening.


Which is why we need people to come on out and help us run it.


Seeing how Pioneer Days is a historical event we would particularly like more Pioneer Families involved in the decision making and planning,

not to mention the families of the kids a lot of our events are geared to.


So make a point to come out to our meetings and raise your hand or signup to help out. The comittment is as little or as much as you'd like.


This is as much your Pioneer Days as ours.

Stop the Presses !

Englewood Pioneer Days is celebrating 60 years !

The committee is very excited to share all of the events and the celebration of the history

with the community.

This year we had many ideas submitted for the theme.

After considering each entry, the committee blended ideas and we are pleased to announce this years theme...  

"Englewood Rocks  

Six Decades" 

​Thanks to Margo Grimshaw for her suggestion of "Englewood Rocks"

and the committees addition of

"Six Decades". We have a winner !

The theme will give all those building floats for the parade and decorating their booths a lot of room

(six decades) to be creative.
