On Thursday, Feb. 2, when the return to Ford Field was announced, Mayor Abdullah H. Hammoud stated, “I’m thrilled to announce that the Homecoming Festival is coming home to Ford Field Park this year. This decision required a lot of planning and preparation to ensure the viability and longevity of Ford Field as the Festival’s home, and I’m grateful to the city workers who helped make it a reality. I’ll see you on the hill!”

The Festival will take place August 4-6 of this year.

The City is also happy to announce the return of the Food Truck Corridor, and new this year, a special Vendor Village dedicated to highlighting the work of the area's artists and non-profits. Businesses, organizations, and individuals can also support this longstanding family-friendly, and fun event at various sponsorship levels.

Festival planning is well underway, and festivalgoers this year can expect many of the same cherished attractions and amenities. The 42-year-old festival was established in 1980 and has been a summer staple in the city ever since. It initially began, in part, as a reunion for graduates of Dearborn’s high schools, and is now an annual tradition that draws visitors from across the region.

Homecoming has traditionally been one of the most important fundraisers for dozens of non-profit groups that serve the Dearborn community. In addition to volunteering their time and talents at the Festival, many of these groups raise funds to support their important work.

Even with outstanding volunteer support, however, the Homecoming Festival would not be possible without generous donations from sponsors.

The Festival will be open from 12-11 p.m. every day, Friday, Aug. 4 through Sunday, Aug. 6. More details are forthcoming about entertainment line-up, food, fireworks, and other amenities.
