Get ready for three days packed with fun!

Dates: May 30-June 1, 2024

The Frontier Days Festival in Milford has been held annually since 1963, featuring amazing entertainment possibilities for any taste. The idea of this festival is to "go back to the roots." At the event, visitors can watch a craft show, play various games, go on fun rides, taste a plethora of dishes from food booths, take part in competitions (like spaghetti or frog jumping ones), and even participate in a colorful parade.
