We need volunteers to give some of their time with preparations and on the day itself. Give whatever time you can! Contact Mary Bouchard.

“Local talent Exhibit” entries are open to anyone interested in displaying their arts or crafts. Displays include professional artist’s paintings, amazing quilting, detailed stain glass, and so much more.

This is a one-day exhibit, held indoors during our 3rd of July Events. Volunteers will be onhand to monitor the exhibits. Items are not for sale during the exhibit, but details about yourself and your craft can be promoted (explained further in the Application Form). Persons can be present to talk or demo their craft, and/business cards can be on display. Approval of entries is a simple and quick process. For entry forms and questions, please contact Mary Bouchard.

Come one, come all, to our parade! Floats, antique fire trucks and cars, Fell ponies, oxen, decorated bikes, and more!

See the works of our local artists and makers! Crafts, art, stained glass, wooden spoon exhibit and demo, handmade quilts, pottery, and other items on display.

Our Roxbury Free Library hosts its annual book sale. Get your summer reading here! The sale takes place in the Roxbury Community Hall.

Food, glorious food! The Roxbury Volunteer Fire Station hosts the Chicken BBQ. Tickets sold on the day. Details to follow.

See Hilary Barcomb and another clogger perform before/after the parade, and more! Watch this space!

Face painting, fun games, and other activities are in the works.

The Congregational Church holds its rummage sale, with proceeds going to the Roxbury Food Shelf and the maintenance of the church. Something for everyone!
