Various times

Head to Newburyport for the annual celebration of Yankee Homecoming. This week-long celebration features a parade, fireworks, live music, vendors, and more. 

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 1800s to return home for a "National Family Reunion.” Newburyport was one of 29 cities to celebrate the inaugural festival.
