When: July 29th & 30th, 2016
Location: Newfield, NY

The Newfield Old Home Days committee would like to take this opportunity to provide details about what goes into the event. The Old Home Days celebration started in the 1920’s and is Newfield’s largest event of the year. It brings the community together for two days to enjoy great food, entertainment, and festivities. Not only does it help build a sense of community, many Newfield groups benefit from the event. The majority of the vendors at the event are non-profit organizations, including classes earning money for trips and other class projects. Local music groups also benefit from the exposure they get by performing for the crowd. We estimate that 1500-2000 people attend the event and we strive to increase that every year.
