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, a new group made up of mostly members who are involved with planning the 2012 event. They are the Fort Dodge Frontier Days Committee. Our committee invites you to find out how easy it is to get involved and share your interest skills and join in helping Fort Dodge Frontier Days take place.
