THANK YOU sponsors!

The Hometown Festival received the following note of thanks yesterday from a local resident:

“I was extremely appreciative that it wasn’t just rows on rows of vendors hawking goods, but instead some wonderful music and dancing as well as FREE events and fun for the kids. As parents we are “ticketed” to death for everything and it was so wonderful for them to be able to ride a carnival ride and play in a bouncy house at no cost to the families.”

The Festival committee would not be able to plan and provide the events and attractions we do without the unwavering support of our local business sponsors. It is their generosity that makes it possible for the Festival to be free.

So once again, we would like to extend a sincere THANK YOU to each of the businesses that make the Hometown Festival the Best Day of the Year in Round Hill! Please visit them and support their businesses whenever you can!





Please Drive Carefully!

We will have a lot of pedestrian traffic around Round Hill on Saturday, and there will be road closures associated with the 5k, Parade and Downhill Derby. Please drive extra carefully through town, or better yet, park your car and walk, run, bike or scooter to the Festival and spend the Best Day of the Year with us in “downtown” Round Hill!
