Plainview Frontier Day

Sending you back in time to the old Wild West

Plainview, AR 1900's

2023 Frontier Day Festival

Frontier Day began back in the 1980's, and to celebrate Plainview's centennial, it was revived in 2007 and went on for another 8 years through 2015. 

Frontier Day 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 revive Frontier Day once again.


DATE: September 23, 2023

TIME: 10 AM to 4 PM

LOCATION: Main Street in Old Frontier Town, Plainview, AR

On Plainview's 100th anniversary in 2007, the City decided to recreate an old 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.
