Collector’s Buttons

Frontier Days 2017 – at the Fort Museum – Fort Dodge

June 2nd  – Friday     June 3rd – Saturday     June 4th – Sunday

Annual Buttons:  For 43 years Frontier Days has offered a new design and artwork on the annual button.  Many have collected those buttons, some starting in the first year of the event, others in the year they first attended or a year marking a special occasion for remembering  that  Frontier Days.  The button mainly provided you entrance to Frontier Days each year.

Wristbands replace buttons for entrance – Starting in 2013, entrance into the Frontier Days grounds is through a $5 donation. In 2017 the Frontier Days Wristband is good for all three days of this year’s event, and available at various stores in Fort Dodge and at the gates during Frontier Days at the Fort Museum.

Collector’s Button – To continue to provide an annual button for those wanting to collect a button, The Frontier Days committee has this year and will continue to produce an annual “Collector’s Button” with a new design for each year.

In 2017, the annual collector’s button will be available with a $5 donation at the Frontier Days booth located in the Opera House.  Hours of the booth are listed below, and also on the 2017 schedule available at the gates.   * Note:  The Collector’s button does not provide your entry onto the Frontier Days – Fort Museum grounds; it is offered only as a collectable button.
