Homecoming

2014 Homecoming royaltyBelpre Homecoming Festival is held annually the first weekend in August in Civitan Park, Blennerhassett Avenue, Belpre, Ohio. It is “more than just a weekend—it’s a destination!! Belpre Homecoming Committee plan the three-day celebration for local residents to assemble on the beautiful banks of the Ohio river to celebrate their hometown and their relationships with family, friends and local businesses.

Belpre Homecoming is also a destination for visitors to Southeast Ohio to enjoy a weekend getaway or a trip back in time as they experience local history. Also, what a place to experience a 50th high school reunion!! Reunion-goers are found rekindling old friendships over a funnel cake or taco-in-a-bag as they tour vendor displays or search their high school yearbooks at the Alumni Association tent.

What does every visitor to Belpre Homecoming enjoy? Amusement rides, fair food and home-made goodies, crafters and business vendors, and, of course, pageants.
