Steinbach Chamber Gears Up for 55th Annual Pioneer Days Parade!
The Steinbach Chamber of Commerce Board and staff are excited to announce the 55th Annual Pioneer Days Parade will take place on Friday, August 4, 2023! 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 100 unique entries per year and the always-popular candy and other free giveaways, thousands of people attend the parade each year.
Starting at the Fire Hall at 10:00am, the parade will proceed west down Main Street, then north on Highway 12, ending at Stone Bridge Crossing. For a map showing street closures, click here. Most of the closures will take place from 8am till about noon on Parade day.
Attendees are reminded and encouraged to ‘Bring a Tin for the Bin!’ as South East Helping Hands will be collecting non-perishable food items for the local food bank.
In the interest of public safety, the Steinbach Chamber together with Steinbach RCMP, Steinbach Fire Department and the City of Steinbach reminds all spectators that failure to stay behind the marked barricade tape could result in serious injury. Parents/guardians are urged to ensure their children do not run into the street to grab candy/prizes.
Parade judges will be giving out prizes to entries in four categories:
- Historical – Show us the history / progression of your organization.
- Animal Entry – Horses, dogs or anything in between! Show us your connection to animals.
- Most Creative – Think outside of the box and get creative.
- Judges Choice – Get creative and wow the crowd!
The Steinbach Chamber of Commerce unites and represents Steinbach and area businesses, in the belief that the resulting economic growth and stability provides an enhanced quality of life for the entire community. The Pioneer Days Parade is one of many annual events put on by the Steinbach Chamber.
