The 27th Annual Pioneer Day sponsored by Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures celebrates Osceola County’s first residents and the pioneering spirit of the late 19th century. Step back in time at the annual festival hosted at the Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek. Osceola County Historical Society strives to educate residents and visitors about early life in Central Florida through historic re-enactments, demonstrations, live entertainment, and a “Florida made” market at this one-day free public event. In conjunction with Pioneer Day we offer a school day for educators and students.
