We are busy planning our 2024 festival.  Please check back soon for more information.  In the meantime below is information on last years events.

Know Your Community information fair will be held August 1st  10am – 2pm at Newburyport Community Center, 331 High Street

Whether you’re a lifelong area resident of greater Newburyport, or new to the area, stop by the, “Know Your Community”, information fair to learn more about all the amazing local resources for all area residents and their families.   Many booths will be geared to our residents age 50 and older, but there will be information geared to all ages.  You’ll have the opportunity to connect with local experts, grab a bite from one of our food trucks, and explore the Newburyport Community Center!

Booths will feature city, regional, and state government agencies, local non-profit and social service agencies, and local for-profit services like senior living communities, health care agencies and more. The fair will also feature local food trucks serving coffee, breakfast, and lunch so bring your appetite!

Greater Newburyport is fortunate to have a wealth of public and private resources that serve  our community, and this is your chance to see them all in one place! Come and learn about all that Greater Newburyport has to offer.
