Yankee Homecoming 2014: Volunteer - YOU Make the Difference

Downtown Entertainment

Downtown Entertainment provides a non-paying performing opportunity where a performer will have an opportunity to showcase their talent to the massive audience that attends Yankee Homecoming daily. YHC estimates that roughly anywhere from 6-8,000 people are attending Yankee Homecoming at any given moment throughout the day during the week long festival. Yankee Homecoming seeks out talent that are willing to donate their performance and talent in exchange to the massive amount of exposure that will receive at this great festival.

With three stages of music, demonstrations and fun! Our Downtown Entertainment features a wide variety of bands, demonstrations and other acts on three different stages in downtown Newburyport. Whether you’re in Market Square, strolling down Inn Street or relaxing at the waterfront, you’ll find something to entertain you.

Please let me know if we can have you be a part of Yankee Homecoming this year.
