Pioneer Days 2021


The Negaunee Irontown Association would like to thank everyone who has purchased a Supporter Card and a Sponsorship with the ultimate goal of having a 2021 Pioneer Days Celebration July 2nd to the 10th .  It is truly appreciated.

 Irontown is planning on having the 2021 Pioneer Days Celebration in some condensed/smaller form with safety precautions in place.  With limited volunteers we might not be able to have all the events everyone is used to but are hoping to be able to provide something for everyone to enjoy.
