Old fashioned summer fun at Newburyport’s Yankee Homecoming running July 29 – August 6!

Mark your calendar and plan to join the town of Newburyport for the region’s premier community festival!

Nine days of summer fun for adults and kids of all ages! Today these include longtime annual events that showcase road races, the much anticipated Olde Fashioned Sunday, Waterfront Concerts on the Merrimac River, Family Day at Maudslay State Park, Market Square Entertainment and craft and artisan fairs.

The eight day event wraps up with a spectacular Fireworks Display and Grand Parade past the historic houses of High Street. Events celebrating Newburyport’s history have grown to include explorations of the city’s Civil War history, church tours reflecting its connections to New England’s religious history, and guided walks of the old burying grounds as well as many tours of historic homes and buildings.

Sixty years of family, friends and fun!
