Welcome to the Fort Dodge Frontier Days Website
We want to offer you a variety of information and a number of ways to request, find or receive information and the latest schedule of events for the 2013 Frontier Days.
This is the 39th year for the annual Frontier Days celebration held at the Fort Museum in Fort Dodge. From its beginnings our event has been a centerpiece for North Central Iowa to reach out to thousands each year, to carry on the mission of sharing our past and local heritage, and providing today’s Frontier Days entertainment, events and vendors.
Weekly, information will be updated as available in the various areas of our web site. You can go the: ”Contact” tab and send an email if you would like additional information.
Volunteers are the key to planning, organizing and carrying out the events of Frontier Days week. For years a large group of civic mined volunteers known as the Dragoons carried out all the aspects of bringing Frontier Days to life at the Fort. Now in their third year, the current group is made up of mostly members who recently are involved are planning the 2013 event. They are the Frontier Days Fort Dodge Committee. Volunteers are truly needed for many fun assignments from helping guide the parade watchers, guiding those in the Opera House to watching kids have fun on the inflatable’s.
Our committee invites you to find out how easy it is to get involved and share your interest and skills while having fun and building friendships in being part of Frontier Days 2013. Please…. Just a few hours from you will greatly help. It takes over 45,000 man hours to put on this years’ event, you can be an important part where many hands will make the event go well and be the “Show Case” for North Central Iowa.
We hope to see you… at the 2013 Frontier Days……………..
