The event will be held August 3, 4 and 5th, Civitan Park in Belpre along the Ohio River. On Thursday evening we kick off with a welcoming and the lighting of the torch. Friday evening there is a Car Cruise In.
Saturday morning is kicked off with the Belpre Mile race/walk at 9:40am with the Parade following at 10. Each evening is also filled with Pageants for boys and girls of all ages. Homecoming is an event that attracts families in and outside of our community to visit us for a three day festival with a variety of free entertainment.
For 85 years the Belpre Area Chamber of Commerce has been able to provide this to our community with sponsorships and volunteers. Entertainment is provided Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
This year we have Bucky Covington on Thursday evening, ZZ Top Tribute Band & car on Friday, Saturday evening we are pleased to begin the evening with Rick K & The Allnighters and then finish the 85th Homecoming with Fireworks! Fireworks has not been part of the event for the past 14 years due to costs. Being 85 years old we decided to bring them back for 2017!
