Come celebrate the Pioneer Monument’s 100th birthday!
Erected to honor the immigrants who passed through Truckee en-route to new opportunities in the West, the Pioneer Monument has stood majestically at Donner Memorial State Park for 99 years. At its dedication on June 6, 1918, thousands of people and three Donner Party survivors gathered to honor the past. June 9, 2018 is the re-dedication, centennial celebration, and restoration kickoff of this iconic statue.
Ceremonies begin at 11 am, followed by family activities, living history, live music and more. Want to make it a whole day of fun in the park? Join the Sierra State Parks Foundation for their annual Fundraising Gala to raise funds for the construction of an education pavilion and restoration of the iconic landmark.
