2015 THEME – Happy 25th Birthday Yankee Doodle Homecoming!
Permanent Secondary Theme -  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!


The Yankee Doodle Homecoming Committee is pleased to announce that THE 25th ANNUAL YANKEE DOODLE HOMECOMING will be held on the second weekend after Labor Day, September 18–20, 2015.


This year’s theme is:  Happy 25th Birthday Yankee Doodle Homecoming!.


As always, the Billerica Colonial Minute Men will hold a weekend encampment with demonstrations, tarring and feathering and their infamous battle with the British. Saturday’s activities will include the parade, marketplace vendors, crafters, field games, nonprofit groups, music, and the annual fireworks at the Marshall Middle School.


Sunday will include the annual 4Paws in Action event, crafters and marketplace vendors, as well as other events around town for public enjoyment and participation. All Sunday events will begin at 11am and end by 3pm.


Based on last year’s event, our anticipated costs for 2015 will be $45,000, which includes in kind services from local organizations, and businesses that help to defray some of the cost incurred to bring a quality weekend to the community.


Volunteers are also needed for various sub-committees and weekend activities.  These volunteers come from the community as well as many business supporters.  A minimum commitment of two-hour segments is asked for all volunteers during the weekend activities. If you are interested in becoming a Yankee Doodle Volunteer, please contact Taryn Gillis at (978) 502-7684 or email her at
