Billed as a fun morning for families at America’s best preserved frontier fort, the 2017 edition of Frontier Day will be from 7:30 a.m. until noon at Fort Concho, 630 S. Oakes St. Admission is free to the fort’s second-largest annual event.

San Angelo’s Lions Clubs will host a pancake breakfast with sausage and beverages at the event from 7:30 a.m.-11 a.m. The cost is $6 per person.

Among Frontier Day’s many exhibits and activities are:

  • Houses dedicated to cattle, wool and mohair, Mexican-American heritage and pioneer families.
  • Demonstrations on sheep shearing, sheepdogs and 1880s base ball.
  • Medicinal, edible and useful plant exhibits.
  • Chuckwagon cooking.
  • Frontier crafts and games.
  • Living history demonstrations, including Chief Broken Eagle and Buffalo Soldiers.
  • Live entertainment, including trick roper Doug Whitaker.
  • A knife-maker.
  • Historic exhibits.

 “Agriculture is in our blood,” Fort Concho Manager Bob Bluthardt said. “It’s also in our tummies in the form of meat, fruits, veggies and dairy, and on our bodies in the form of cotton and woolen clothing. Frontier Day offers a festive look at the Concho Valley’s role in that. We’ve filled the morning with oodles of fascinating things to see and do. And, with the exception of the flapjacks, like lots of good, old-fashioned fun, it’s absolutely free!”
