REGISTRATION FOR THE 2019 WILDER DAYS FESTIVAL IS NOW OPEN. THE EVENT WILL BE SEPTEMBER 20-21, 2019 AND WILL BE HELD AT THE HISTORIC WILDER HOME AND MUSEUM.
When visiting Mansfield you can see a piece of history at the Wilder home and museum on Rocky Ridge.

And if you want to feel as if you have stepped back in time, you can visit Baker Creek pioneer village. Free to all visitors, come and enjoy the pioneer experience.
Mansfield offers a unique experience with its historic sites and festivals, such as the annual Wilder Days. Each fall the community gathers to celebrate its pioneer heritage and Laura Ingalls Wilder. People from all over the country come to join in the celebrations and watch the annual outdoor “Laura’s Memories” play.
The Mansfield Chamber of Commerce sponsors a several community events that focus our cultural heritage, and small town appeal. This includes Wilder Days, Taste of Spring, Easter Egg Hunt, the Baker Creek planting festival, the 4th of July celebration, Trick or Treat on the square, and the Christmas parade; for more information see the events page.
Mansfield also has a beautiful park and pool. Our city park is home to the outdoor amphitheater that hosts the “Laura’s Memories” play each year. The park has a scenic walking trail and pavilion. Adjacent to the park is the Mansfield pool, tennis courts, and the Community Center.
Most of our business are locally owned and operated, mixed in with a few well-known companies. Mansfield welcomes new businesses and the Chamber would love to help and support prospective business owners. For membership information please see the membership page.
