In 1899, “ Amesbury Day”, a one-day celebration was held at lake Gardner for employees of Amesbury’s various mills and businesses. Over the years it has grown and changed into the Amesbury Days as we know it now; a 116-year-old tradition that celebrates the pride we have in our community, business' and unique history that is Amesbury.
Amesbury Days 2015 is highlighted with a week long program of events, activities and celebrations drawing people from not only within and around the city; but the entire seacoast region. The celebration begins on the last Thursday in June, and ends on the 4th of July.
Amesbury Days 2015 offers something fun for every member of the family: Block Party, Craft Brewfest, Kids Day in the Park, Kids Night in the Mill yard, Movie in the Millyard, Community-wide Yard Sale, art festivals, classic car show, and so much more! Each year’s celebration is punctuated by our explosive pyrotechnics display at Woodsom Farm. One of the few remaining fireworks displays on the Fourth of July, the spectacular show of lights and sounds continues to grow to the crowd’s delight.
