Wilder Days is an annual event that is held by the community of Mansfield, Missouri, to remember and recognize one of their favorite and very famous residents,the late Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Laura enjoyed living and working on their farm in the Mansfield community and spent many hours writing her childhood experiences of pioneer life in this country which became the favorite Little House books that children love today in many countries besides our own.

Venders and volunteers from the community gather to show midwestern hospitality to visitors during the celebration…hospitality that is common here all through the year.
