HOPKINTON — Town Manager Norman Khumalo and Friends of Hopkinton President Ann Click wish to share information on this year’s Hopkinton Family Day. 

WHEN: 

Saturday, Sept. 17 beginning at 2 p.m.

WHERE:

Athletic fields behind Hopkinton High School, 90 Hayden Rowe St.

WHAT:

Hopkinton Family Day, coordinated by the Friends of Hopkinton, is an exciting event for families that features engaging live entertainment, fun activities for community members of all ages, delicious food trucks and a dazzling fireworks display. 

Hopkinton Family Day brings the community together and helps families get to know the organizations, groups and businesses in town, as well as all of the people behind them.  

Community members will be able to enjoy live entertainment and food trucks throughout the event, beginning at 2 p.m. From 2-6 p.m., town organizations, non-profits, clubs and businesses located in Hopkinton offer activities, such as art projects, athletic events, games and more.

From 6-8 p.m., attendees will be able to continue enjoying live entertainment and the food trucks while the activities break down in preparation for the fireworks display. Fireworks are expected to begin around dusk, or approximately 8 p.m.

Hopkinton Family Day is free to attend, and all of the activities are free for participation. Community members will need to pay for food truck items. 

“Hopkinton Family Day brings people from throughout our community together to enjoy an array of exciting, family-friendly events at no cost to them,” Town Manager Khumalo said. “While children enjoy our fun games and booths, families will also have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with local organizations and resources, all culminating with a stunning fireworks show. We hope to see everyone there.”

“The Friends of Hopkinton is extremely excited to invite community members to this year’s Family Day, and to be able to bring this event back for the first time since 2019,” Click said. “We have been working hard for several months to make this Family Day the best yet, and we encourage everyone to keep an eye out for additional details to be shared ahead of the event. We can’t wait to welcome everyone in September.”

Hopkinton Family Day was last held in 2019. The fireworks display was unable to take place at the 2019 event due to risks posed by mosquitoes, and the full event was not held in 2020 or 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hopkinton Family Day is coordinated by the Friends of Hopkinton organization. Its goal is to provide community activities that encourage and support town spirit, enthusiasm and pride.
