Plainview Frontier Day
Sending you back in time to the old Wild West
Frontier Day Festival
Frontier Day began as a celebration of Plainview's centennial in 2007 and lasted through 2015.
It was a time when the town came together to celebrate the old days and the old ways of living. This one-day fun filled festival celebrated the town history with mobile cafe's, shopping vendors, horse drawn wagons, a parade, live entertainment, food, games, and fun for the whole family.
So, this year (2023) the Plainview AR Community Events organization has decided to retire the Hometown Summer Market and Fall Fest and bring back Frontier Day!
Stay tuned for more information.
Frontier Day Decor
On Plainview's 100th anniversary in 2007, the City decided to create a new tradition within the small town. Frontier Day was a celebration for what Plainview is at heart: It is a historical place where its best days were the old days. To give tourist a feel of this, the town built small old-fashioned buildings that were made to look like an old wild west town from the early 1900s. The City's Beautification Committee keeps the town decorated so beautifully throughout the year. Drive through the little town of Plainview any day and you are sure to see a few tourists, even locals, standing in the Old Frontier Town taking pictures and wondering what it would have been like back in those days.
I never had the opportunity to go to Frontier Day. It looked like a lot of fun!
