Newark Valley Summerfest
July 31 @ 9:00 am - 9:00 pm
Come enjoy music, food, and plenty of fun!
The Newark Valley Summerfest will be held in two locations; the Village Green on Route 38, and at the Historic Newark Valley Depot on Depot Street. The fun will start at 9 a.m. and will end at 4 p.m. on the Green and at 9 p.m. at the Depot.
Browse crafters and vendors, food trucks, a chicken BBQ, music, classic cars, fire trucks, face painting, and much more!
Enter in the Duck Race on a man-made stream in the railroad tracks. The Newark Valley Fire Department will supply the water as they release the ducks. Duck race tickets are available at several local businesses in Newark Valley, Richford and Berkshire. Make sure to get your Lone Duck or Quacker Pack of tickets for your chance to win. Tickets will also be available at the Northern Tioga Chamber of Commerce booth on the day of the event until 1 p.m.
Also new this year, the organizers are planning a Teddy Bear Parade for children preschool through kindergarten. They can bring their favorite Teddy Bear or stuffed animal and dress them up (as well as themselves) to carry or pull in a wagon, etc. The parade will begin at noon at the Depot. Rowdy from the Rumble Ponies will be leading the parade.
The event will close with fireworks set off from Cook’s Hill, which are visible for miles around. Fireworks will start approximately at 9 p.m.
Watch them from home, the Village, the High School or the soccer fields across from Bement-Billings Farmstead.
