Clark Days is this weekend
If you haven’t been out to Pompey’s Pillar in awhile (or ever!), this weekend is a great time to go during the annual Clark Days celebration on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.
According to Jeff Kitchens, Pompeys Pillar National Monument Manager, the theme for this year’s Clark Days celebration is “Revisiting the Trail” looking back at over 200 years of history of land exploration and surveying. “We are really excited to offer the public a historic journey back in time to when Clark visited the Pillar mixed with fun activities and informative presentations”.
The event begins on Saturday at 3pm with kids and family activities, historical presentations, and food. Saturday night caps off with ghost stories around camp. Free overnight camping and RV space is available.
The event continues on Sunday with a pancake breakfast, historic activities & displays featuring historic firearm demonstrations, live buffalos, displays from local museums and historic centers, kid’s games, blacksmiths, Native American Cultural Demonstrations, food from the trail, and more.

Pompeys Pillar contains the signature of Captain William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Clark’s inscription is the expedition’s only remaining physical evidence visible of its actual route. An interpretive center at the site recounts Clark’s journey through the Yellowstone Valley in 1806. More information on the national monument can be found at http://blm.gov/99jd
