Laura Ingalls Wilder Events Around the Country 2016

For a long time I debated if I could possibly keep a list of Laura Ingalls Wilder events around the country up to date. I finally decided that current information is probably best posted on a month by month basis so for current information search this site for the name of the month you are looking for and the word event (for example September 2015 Laura Ingalls Wilder Events).

I decided that doing an annual list of the major repeating events would be worthwhile. Let me know if I’m missing any. Most of these events are annual, but check with the group hosting the event for exact dates for following years.

Watch for updates information on my events page.

Pageant Selection for 2017 – Little Town on the Prairie

The Memorial Society in De Smet has long staunchly held that when you pay a subscription for “Laura Ingalls Wilder Lore” that was all you were getting and it was completely separate from the museum is rolling the subscriptions into a new membership program. They will honor current subscriptions until they expire, but then have a new program with varying levels and member benefits. No word about how long current lifetime memberships will be handled, but it will no longer be an option to get new ones. A wish list for donations is listed in the Winter 2015 issue of the Lore with a fuller explanation of the new membership program.

On the plus side you get autumn foliage and then later in the year snow photos. I called around to find out when the Laura museums were officially closing for the year.

Laura Ingalls Wilder Events Around the Country 2015

I finally decided that current information is probably best posted on a month by month basis so for current information search this site for the name of the month you are looking for and the word event (for example July 2014 Laura Ingalls Wilder Events).

I decided that doing an annual list of the major repeating events would be worthwhile. Last year it went great where everyone had the information I need out in January. It was a lot harder to get the right dates this year, but I’ve done the best I could. I’ll update this as I get more information. Most of these events are annual, but check with the group hosting the event for exact dates for following years.
