Yankee Homecoming Events

Come experience Yankee Homecoming, a Newburyport historic tradition.  The 2017 Yankee Homecoming events run from Saturday, July 29th through Sunday, August 6th.  Check the Newburyport.com Events Calendar for event details and download the Newburyport App  for direct access to Greater Newburyport Events.

In 1958 Newburyport held their first Yankee Homecoming, welcoming and encouraging Newburyport natives and visitors to return to Newburyport for the week long celebration honoring historical landmarks still standing.  Although there were 29 New England towns that originally hosted Yankee Homecoming celebrations, Newburyport is the only city that still continues the tradition today.

With the help of many dedicated volunteers Yankee Homecoming events have expanded throughout the years, and the tradition of honoring the US Coast Guard birthday on August 4th still remains.  The dates for the 1st Yankee Homecoming celebration were chosen with a goal of ensuring that the Coast Guard birthday would coincided with Yankee Homecoming festivities.  The Coast Guard is an important element of Newburyport history being that Newburyport is the home of the US Coast Guard.

Yankee Homecoming is a thriving tradition that makes Newburyport unique, brings together our community and promotes our local economy.  Newburyport.Com is proud to partner with The Yankee Homecoming Committee to encourage local participation and raise awareness outside Newburyport.
