Yankee Homecoming Brings Out the Best…
July 30th – August 7th 2022

Brings out the best…  A theme for the Yankee Homecoming (YHC) celebration for 2022 that certainly rings true. 

  • The best local event celebrating the greater Newburyport Community, now in its 66th year!
  • The best of YHC participants, of all ages, who come out to enjoy and partake in the many activities YHC holds during the week,
  • The best of YHC volunteers, so freely giving of their time and talents to ensure the week-long celebration is fun and safe for all,
  • The best of our local business community stepping up to sponsor the multitude of events during the week-long celebration,
  • The best of our local citizenry in helping our neighbors in these unprecedented times with the pandemic around us, by supporting the YHC food drop off locations in town, at Dunkin at the Route One rotary and at Newburyport Bank on Storey Avenue.

It is an honor to serve as the General Chair for the 2022 Yankee Homecoming Celebration.  My wife Victoria and I chose to move to Newburyport in 2015, from out-of-state.  During a weekend housing hunting trip which occurred during the Fall Festival, we immediately felt the sense of community and civic pride.   The next day we returned and started house hunting.  In getting involved with YHC, we have met wonderful and dedicated people from all the surrounding communities, who work so tirelessly to further that sense of community and civic pride, in presenting the Yankee Homecoming festivities.  2022 will be no exception.

Last year YHC was able to pull together a tremendous week-long celebration with only two months of planning due to the uncertainties with the pandemic.  This year we again have ten months to plan an unforgettable celebration.  This website provides many links:  to volunteer, to donate, to plan events to attend, to contact us with your input and suggestions.  I encourage you to get involved in the 2022 event.  Check this website for our notice of our first planning meeting in January 2022, (and subsequent planning meetings).  You can help Yankee Homecoming make this a truly great week-long celebration!
