Q. Who puts on Homerfest and Why?
A. Years ago Homer Township, by the request of the public, was ask to sponsor a little fest following their annual independence day parade; the public wanted to carry on the merriment at Culver Park. With the impending Village’s 10th and Township’s 175th Anniversary, an expanded committee, came together to bring our community a bigger, better fest to celebrate these milestones.

After the success of the first Homer Fest, of that scale, the public once again asked for more. So here we go again, with the Homer Community Parade & Fest; giving back to the community for the enjoyment of all.

As long as the residents of this community express a desire for this type of event, we will, with the commitment of Township/Village boards/committees and numerous volunteers, make this an annual event!
