2023 Pioneer Days & Heritage Festival Returned To Berryville

The 2023 Pioneer Days & Heritage Festival the weekend of Sept. 22-23 was indeed a huge success, allowing thousands of local residents and area visitors the chance to step back in time to explore Carroll County history up close and personal. It included lots of family-friendly fun, live music, good food, history demonstrations, vendors, and the chance to tour restored vintage buildings in Pioneer Park, next to the Berryville Public Library.

Our thanks to all the bands that performed, and to The Mountain Gypsies of nearby Madison County for their amazing show that closed out the festival. Here are videos of just two of their songs that delighted the crowd:

We will be posting photos of the festival in the coming week. Please check back soon to see more!
