Englewood Pioneer Days Parade & Festival
An eclectic lineup of family-friendly events take place, including a chalk fest, leading up to the 61st annual Englewood Pioneer Day Parade on Sept. 4. For the full lineup leading up to the big day, see the event's website. Originally the Englewood Pioneer Day Parade – and all its surrounding events – were managed by individuals and organizations in the Englewood community. Over the years the organization was assumed by just one group which finally found the job too much to handle and decided to retire. This decision put the whole event in jeopardy and only a grass-roots response by a wide variety of community members has brought it back. These community members have formed what is now called the Englewood Pioneer Day Parade Committee. The primary goal of the Englewood Pioneer Days Committee is to ensure the continuation of the Englewood Pioneer Days Parade. In analyzing the history of the Pioneer Days Parade and its surrounding events over the years, the Committee believes a factor critical in ensuring the continuation of this event is that the organization and obligation is shouldered by the whole of the community as opposed to a single community group or organization. Membership on the Englewood Pioneer Days Parade Committee is open to any individual or an organization sending an authorized representative. Participation on the Englewood Pioneer Days Parade Committee asks that the individual or representative, in all discussions and decisions, keep the goal of continuation of the Englewood Pioneer Days Parade as their priority. All individuals and organizations will be equally encouraged and allowed opportunities to participate in the Englewood Pioneer Days Parade and any other activities surrounding it. The Englewood Pioneer Days Parade and any events sponsored by or introduced by the Englewood Pioneer Days Committee will operate under a “balanced budget” philosophy and adhere to the spirit of the Englewood Pioneer Days celebration, that being; affordable and inclusive of all.
