Thanks for visiting our FB page. In April, OHD was voted The Best Community Event in Central MA for another consecutive year!! We appreciate and again want to thank everyone who voted for us. OHD is a non-for-profit town program that provides an educational & fun-filled event where there's always a little something for everyone.

Each year, our small committee of 8, pulls out all the stops to provide a wonderful, educational event with NO general admission fee. On Friday & Saturday, in addition to the children's inflatable "fairway", we host several popular vendors, such as WingMasters (educational raptor shows), Toe Jam Puppet Band (musical children's group), Stilt-walking Jugglers, Dee-Jay services and our In-The-Park Family movie. While small charges are implemented for the Wine Tastings & Appraisal Faire, they do not meet the entire costs for the well-known appraisers' fees & wine or the other special activities that are offered.

We are asking for our public's financial support. In addition to the standard "fairway" inflatables charges, our normal annual expenses include over $6,000 for vendors that everyone comes to OHD to enjoy. Those expenses are not passed on to the public. Over the past 15 years, OHD has come to be the town event that other neighboring towns want to mimic. Unfortunately, the costs to produce the event is increasing and without financial support, we will need to begin charging additional fees for some of the special vendors that help make OHD the event that everyone waits for. That is not something we want to do, but may become necessary for our future. For example, in 2015, we will again host (for the 3rd consecutive year) 15 Massachusetts museums ALL IN ONE ROOM, without charging an entrance fee. No where else can you go with your family to learn & experience what these museums offer without paying a small cost. Prior to the museum event, we brought in the 4 Major New England Championship Sports team trophies for everyone to view and have photos taken with them. That was the first time all our NE team trophies were in one room all at the same time.

We want to continue to offer these special experiences for FREE, but financially, that may become an issue. Please consider a donation of any size... every little bit will help continue to bring these events for our families to enjoy. Donation checks or money orders should be made out to Clinton Olde Home Day and may be sent to:

Below is an updated snap-shot of what we are offering in 2015. Please come out & experience Clinton's Olde Home Day with your family and friends. It's well worth the trip...

Friday night activities include:

NEW SPECIAL Musical Activity for kids (over 13) and adults ...LIP SYNC CONTEST... KMJ Entertainment will return again entertaining everyone with music & fun contest. Day of Contest Sign-Up & Song Choice is required, as time & space is limited.

Participating Museums include: Antique Appraisal Faire will return for everyone's enjoyment & will feature several of your favorite appraisers (watch for more specific information that will be available closer to OHD). For everyone's convenience, this activity will be held outside under a tent. Also under the tent, a wine tasting of different selections of specialty wines (different than those wines provided with the Museum activity) will also be available. Watch our website (and our FB page) for more detailed information on the appraisers who will be coming.

For the kids physical enjoyment, The Laser Tag, The Gyro Space Ball & the Mobile Arcade will be returning & when things start getting dark, make sure your blankets & chairs are close-by & available for the Movie in the Park. As always, our Food Court (provided by local clubs and vendors) will be there from 5 to 10pm to help you with your hunger pangs.

Saturday activities include: Our only objective is to provide a fun filled family event for our town and guests, free of charge. While many of the local area events continue to charge admission for their events, Clinton's OHD wants to remain available to our attendees without charging a fee for general admission. Olde Home Day is a non-profit town program. For 15 years, we have provided family fun & entertainment in central Massachusetts for everyone's enjoyment.
