Yankee Homecoming Events 2023

Reunited by Historic Newburyport Tradition

Yankee Homecoming Events

The 2023 Yankee Homecoming events will take place Saturday, July 29th through Sunday, August 6th. Yankee Homecoming is an annual 9 day festival that originated in 1958 in 29 New England towns and continues to thrive as a cherished tradition for the Newburyport community as well as visitors from near and far. Newburyport is proud to be the last remaining city that continues to host this historic tradition. Although the festivities have evolved over time, the Yankee Homecoming history of reuniting family and friends is still the foundation for this wonderful series of events.
