Northampton Day is back for 300th celebration


The Northampton Day Festival returns Sunday, Sept. 25, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the former Richboro Middle School, 98 Upper Holland Road, Richboro.

There will be free parking, free admission, free rides and amusements, and free entertainment all day.

The festival falls right in the middle of the Northampton 300th celebration this year.

On exhibit will be several projects the 300th Committee created celebrating the township’s past, present and future, in addition to the lineup of activities showcased in the festival.

Entertainment includes the talent show, Puppets Pizzazz, A-Z Magic, strolling mummers, and the RGM Project.

The Bucks County Sheriff’s office will distribute “Kid ID Cards” and the Temple University medivac helicopter is expected to land on the field. The Wheelmen, dressed in period clothing, will be on hand with several old-time bicycles. They will partner with local police to offer a bike rodeo. The mini-horses are returning too.

All the rides and amusements are free this year; additional children’s entertainment includes “Giant Games,” cornhole and a photo booth. The food selection includes many new options this year, and there will be many vendors and exhibitors on hand.

After the last festival, organizers donated $10,000 to local nonprofits, and gave scholarships to graduating high school seniors who volunteered at the festival, with revenues from the event.

Northampton Days, Inc. is a private not-for-profit corporation that has no paid employees and relies totally on volunteers to bring this festival to the community. New volunteers are wanted. For information, contact Stephen Bryer at 215-407-741 or
