Steinbach Chamber Makes Tough Decision To Cancel Annual Pioneer Days Parade
Every year, the Pioneer Days Parade in Steinbach is a special event for a variety of reasons. However, this year’s circumstances necessitate major changes for community health and safety. For this reason, the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s parade.
“Based on Chamber member feedback and after careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Pioneer Days Parade due to our current environment,” said Michelle Bezditny, Executive Director, Steinbach Chamber. “We did not make this decision lightly, as we realize how important this exceptional event is to our community, and we want to take the health and safety of our community seriously. We look forward to organizing the Pioneer Days Parade in 2021!”
This year would have marked the 52nd Pioneer Days Parade in Steinbach. Steinbach is known far and wide for its Annual Pioneer Days Parade that kicks off the Pioneer Days weekend of festivities in Steinbach, celebrating the community’s roots and rich heritage. With an average of 120 unique entries per year and the always-popular candy and other free giveaways, thousands of people attend the parade each year.
