In Tupelo on the 4th Saturday of the month from February to November? Hop on your bike and pedal on over to the Tupelo Visitor Center between 10am and 5pm to experience Pioneer Day.
This is a great opportunity to add further to your knowledge of the Natchez Trace's rich history and heritage, with a hands-on, practical approach and opportunity to chat withthose who know it best.
The Tombigbee Pioneer Group will demonstrate pioneer era crafts and skills. The demonstrations will show the challenges faced and creative solutions developed by those Americans who lived in the area from the 1700s to around 1840.
The public is invited to participate in pioneer lifestyle activities that often include crafting baskets, spinning, weaving, leather working, making cornhusk dolls, and other traditional craft demonstrations. Mountain dulcimer demonstrations are usually offered throughout the day. Children are invited to dress up in pioneer clothes and participate in craft activities.
This program is free to the public. The visitor center is located at milepost 266 on the Natchez Trace Parkway, near Tupelo, Mississippi. For additional information, please call (800) 305-7417.
