This Sunday marks the 23rd Annual Pioneer Day in Chatsworth, celebrated at the Homestead Acre.
The event, presented by the Chatsworth Historical Society, celebrates the lives lived in old-time Chatsworth. Highlighting this year's festivities will be tours of the historic Minnie Hill Palmer Cottage, an official Los Angeles cultural monument.
Pioneer Day boasts showcases from local wood carvers, blacksmiths and needle workers, many of whom will also be selling their wares. Additionally, there will be a live spinning wheel demonstration as well as the opportunity for visitors and children to create their own quilt squares to take home. For those of a less artistic inclination, gold panning has returned as another activity.
Pioneer days also offers guests a chance to taste some local Chatsworth cuisine in the annual Chili Cook-Off.
This year's event also celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Chatsworth Chamber of Commerce.
The activities will take place at the Homestead Acre, 10385 Shadow Oak Drive, near the entrance to Chatsworth Park South. Parking is available at the Chatsworth train depot with free shuttles running every 15 minutes between 11 a.m and 4 p.m. Admission, which benefits the Historical Society, is $5 for adults and $1 for children, with kids under 5 getting in free.
