First Town Days Festival

Admission to First Town Days Festival in New Philadelphia is free.

First Town Days Festival in New Philadelphia:  A decades old tradition that started as a small festival to raise money to restore the aging 1928 Hershel-Spillman Carousel has now become an event that the city of New Philadelphia cherishes and enjoys every year. First Town Days offers plenty to do for any festival goer. They start the party with a pageant, and continue the excitement throughout the afternoon with parades, a 5k run, shows, contests (including the odd contest of “men’s legs”), live concerts and so much more. There are different themes each day- a day for seniors, families, etc.
