Ebensburg Homecoming Events – July 25th


Ebensburg – Due to the current restrictions on events, and in following the guidelines in place by the Department of Health and the CDC, the Ebensburg Main Street Partnership has made the difficult decision to cancel their Downtown Shutdown and to make adjustments to their Homecoming Day schedule of events scheduled for Saturday, July 25th.

Events that would have been held at Lake Rowena, which include live music, fireworks, kids’ area and food trucks have, unfortunately, been canceled. However, many events will still take place throughout the day including, but not limited to:  the Ebensburg Farmer’s Market, Kid’s Fishing Derby, Free Backpack and Helmet Giveaways, Community Yard Sales, Ebensburg Tennis Center Open House & Free Tennis, Free Yoga Class, Bishop Carroll Indoor Yard Sale, Goodwill Donation Truck Drop-off Site and Ebensburg Library Outdoor Yard Sale.

“We are pleased to see many new events on the schedule this year,” said Danea Koss, Community Development Director. “There’s a really good mix of things to do and they’re spread out through the day so that families can still make the most of this event, even though some things had to be canceled.” The final schedule of events is listed below and can be found online at www.ebensburgpa.com/homecoming and on the Facebook event page. Questions may be directed to Danea Koss at the Ebensburg Borough Office at (814) 472-8414.
