Join us for Milford, Iowa's

Pioneer Days/Quasquicentennial Celebration

July 17th - 23rd, 2017

 

Our goal is to make this an enjoyable week for your entire family! This year we will be celebrating Milford’s 125th Town Celebration with our Annual Pioneer Days.  Join us in our celebration which will include an All School Reunion, Street Dance & much more!

We have partnered with several businesses/organizations who have agreed to chair events.  This is great because it means we will need fewer volunteers.  However, it also means that the Milford Commercial Club will not be generating money from these events which has, in the past, been used to offset our other Pioneer Day costs. We need your support more than ever so that we will be able to keep events free or low cost.

Please consider giving us your financial support.  Any money or prizes donated will be used to offset our expenses for the week.  If you would like to sponsor an event, please let us know as soon as possible.
