Welcome to the annual celebration of Yankee Homecoming!
Yankee Homecoming was the creation of artist Jack Frost, who in 1957 proposed a celebration
that would invite the Yankees that had emigrated west in the 1800’s to return home for a
“national Family Reunion.” Newburyport was one of 29 cities to celebrate the inaugural festival
in 1958, which was promoted as a “national pilgrimage back east where it all began.” The
festival attracted new and old fans of the city alike, promoting our rich history and invoking
pride in the residents of the time.
We are extremely proud to enter our 62 nd year as the only surviving Yankee Homecoming
festival. As you enjoy the many free events to be offered, please take a moment to reflect on
and appreciate the history of our hometown festival, which will be commemorated with fun
facts and anecdotes from events that paved the way for the 2019 Yankee Homecoming.
