Mayor Morse Announces New Celebrate Holyoke Initiative Text Size

Today, Mayor Morse announced a new initiative to revive Celebrate Holyoke, a weekend-long community event in downtown Holyoke. The much-beloved event will come back to Holyoke in August of 2015.

Celebrate Holyoke consists of numerous musical acts from the region and across the country, as well as local restaurants, vendors and community organizations. The weekend-long festival showcases Holyoke’s heritage and culture to Holyoke residents and people from outside the community.  

“When I ran for office last year, one of the things people were most excited about was my emphasis on civic pride, and especially, my pledge to bring back Celebrate Holyoke. I am excited to announce that we’re moving forward with that pledge. I have great memories of attending Celebrate Holyoke. Restoring this event will be a credit to us all, and will show people from around the region why Holyoke is such a special place,” Mayor Morse said.

The City of Holyoke is announcing the formation of a planning committee for Celebrate Holyoke 2015. This year’s planning committee will work on the logistics of the event, and will help plan for a sustainable approach for the coming years. If you are interested in serving on the planning committee, please submit a letter of interest to the Mayor’s Office in City Hall by September 15th.
