What is Yankee Doodle Homecoming?

Billerica Yankee Doodle Homecoming, Inc., was started 30 years ago in order to provide a community-wide, multifaceted event. It is a tradition now draped in history.

The day starts with a parade and the afternoon is filled with fun activities for the young and the young at heart. It features a wide variety of events, vendors, crafters, local organizations, food, demonstrations as well as a Colonial Minutemen Encampment all to benefit the citizens of our community.

The day ends with fireworks and a band at the Marshall Middle School.

As a 501(c)(3) we function solely on donations from various organizations, businesses, our vendors and the public.

It is our honor to bring this event to Billerica each year.

We hope you will join us for this fun-filled day!

Thank you to our Volunteer Committee!
