Pioneer Day (formerly known as the Syrup Sopping & Historical Fair) will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2016 from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. in Loachapoka (just 5 miles west of Auburn). This event has been in the same location for the past 30 years!
The 9-hour festival features weaving and cloth-making demonstrations, mules grinding cane, syrup being made, musical entertainment with hammered and mountain dulcimers, banjos and guitars, a doctor’s beautiful herb and crops garden, Native American dancing, bread making, soap making, period pottery, fireplace and outdoor cooking, and numerous other old-time crafts and unique vendors.
Of course, the famous sweet potato biscuits are made on-site for your enjoyment as well as camp stew, beans, collards, BBQ, and more.
There will be plenty of activities for children as well. Tour the two-story 140 year old Trade Center Museum, watch the blacksmiths at work, visit the Log Cabin, and the Taylor Whatley agricultural implement collection.
