Frontier Day Scheduled For Abilene State Park

Bryan Frazier, Texas Parks and Wildlife

An event featuring 19th century life on the Texas plains is returning this year.

Frontier Day is again a part of Abilene State Park, and will feature booths, activities, displays, reenactments, and demonstrations that highlight the daily routines and challenges experienced by settlers and soldiers that called the area home during the 1800s.

Frontier Day will be held on Saturday, November 3rd at the park, and will include a vintage baseball game, an authentic chuck wagon, a buffalo hunter, archery, old west re-enactors, 1870s military soldier demonstrations, animals, and more.

“It’s important to show people what life would have been like so many years ago, and how people would have survived on the frontier,” said Dawn Capps, park ranger and peace officer at Abilene State Park.

The festivities also mark the 20th anniversary of the Buffalo Soldiers program at Texas Parks and Wildlife, a division of park staff that specializes in preserving and promoting the history, heritage, and culture of the famed black soldier units of the 9th and 10th Cavalry and 24th and 25th Infantry regiments of the U.S. Army.

Park entrance fees will drop to $3 per person for Frontier Day for adults, and admission for kids ages 12 and younger is free.
