101st Annual Utica Homecoming Fall Festival



The 2019 Utica Homecoming Fall Festival will pay homage to the Glass Industry for which Utica at one time was the Center of the Hand Made Window Glass Industry.  The 2019 event will take place like it was in the old days in October.  This years event will be the 101st event and will be held October 2-5th.  Something new coming to this year’s event is the Cincinnati Circus with two separate events.  One being the Carnival Sideshow.  Step back in time and witness the oddities and eccentrics of days gone by.  Ans they will be performing their aerial acts several times during Saturday, October 5th.  Both events will be from 2-10 pm.
