Florida’s premier outdoor festival, Pioneer Park Days, will celebrate its 50th year in 2018. Pioneer Park Days is one of the largest, and the oldest antique tractor, steam engine, and farm equipment shows in the southeast. Some of the highlights include over 200 exhibits of tractors, hit and miss steam engines and farm equipment.

You will also experience historical reenactments, daily tractor parades, arts and crafts, a vintage car show and new this year, The Marketplace, where you will find all things 'Fashionably Old & Fantastically New." 

Pioneer Park Days is an event that teaches the young how their great grandparents lived and many times brings a flicker of remembrance to the old pioneers who made Hardee County great.
