Since 2001, the Sudbury Day Festival has traveled around the world. On Saturday, April 4, 2009, the 7th Annual Sudbury Day Festival will stay close to home celebrating “The Spirit of 0-1-7-7-6.” The festival is being held at a new place and a new time: April 4, 2009 at Lincoln Sudbury High School.
The focus of the exhibits at this year’s festival will be turned toward the town, its people and their accomplishments. The committee feels that by changing the focus toward the town and moving the festival to the spring exhibitors will be more involved with their activities and therefore have more to share with the community. This April date also coincides with Town Meeting. Sudbury Day will provide a great opportunity for people to casually discuss pending issues and seek answers for any last minute questions.
Some of the annual springtime events that could be highlighted at Sudbury Day include Townwide Clean-Up, L-S Art Exhibit, SERF Grant Awards, Sudbury Historical Society’s Virtual Tours, National Volunteer Week, DARE graduations, school chorus, band and orchestra performances, and much more.
The high school provides state-of-the-art facilities opening the door to endless possibilities for activities and entertainment. In addition to allowing for the flexibility to move between the welcoming indoor space and outdoor patios, LS also offers large areas for exhibits, on-site parking, a comfortable eating environment, and power to allow for more elaborate displays.
The festival has grown tremendously over the years, requiring more planning and management, which is harder to do during the summer when many people are away. The Sudbury Day Committee is actively seeking volunteers to join the planning committee.
