President's Message


Howdy Y’all!

The Kettering Holiday at Home Committee welcomes all city slickers, cowboys and cowgirls to the 58th Annual Kettering Holiday at Home event.

As the leading Miami Valley Labor Day festival, we promise you will not be disappointed as the Kettering Holiday at Home is the perfect ending to an Ohio summer.

Thousands of families make plans each year to head on out and spend time at the festival because the family-friendly event has much to offer – from good, wholesome games and entertainment to a great collection of arts and crafts along with a wide array of food. There’s more than enough to go around!

The Kettering Holiday at Home Committee is working on the 2017 events with a theme of: "This Ain’t Our First Rodeo: Saddle Up." In fact, it’s our 58th rodeo and there’s much to be excited about.

We want you and your family to have the best possible experience at this year’s festival. Here are some of the FREE features and highlights:
  • FREE admission
  • FREE nearby parking
  • FREE music and other entertainment all day
  • FREE children’s games
  • Parade representing over 200 community organizations and businesses
  • Top-quality handmade art and craft exhibits
  • Performers from across the Miami Valley and beyond!
  • Food trucks and specialty snacks

In addition to the free features, we have a 5K race, Children’s Fun Run, and Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the Kettering City Schools Booster Club which takes place the morning of Labor Day before the parade. If you anticipate needing assistance, or would like additional information, please call (937) 719-1280.

We'll see you for all the fun this Labor Day - September 2nd, 3rd and 4th!
