What is the Kettering Holiday at Home Celebration?

Holiday at Home is a Labor Day weekend celebration for the family. It is packed with exciting, fun, safe, family-oriented activities designed to encourage people to stay at home and enjoy their family and friends over Labor Day weekend. It has grown in the past 60 plus years from a small, neighborhood event into one of Ohio’s largest Labor Day weekend events.

Events include: 

  • The Miami Valley’s Largest Parade. Last year over 75,000 people lined Far Hills Avenue in Kettering on Labor Day morning to watch the parade. This ranks as one of the highlights of the weekend.
  • Scholarship Contest This event recognizes 3 to 4 young people from the south suburbs. Contestants win scholarship money and are judged on scholastic achievement, and community service participation. The winners will attend all the weekend activities.
  • Gala. Scholarship winners are officially recognized at this event and scholarships are handed out. Last year’s event was attended by over 150 people for dinner and entertainment at the Dayton Country Club in Kettering/Dayton.
  • Auto Show. This invitational event draws collectors from around the tri-state area. They come to compete in what has become a must for competitors and spectators alike. In 2022 there were more than 55 entrants in the Holiday at Home Auto Show. A VW car show was well attended on Sunday as well.
  • Activities on Lincoln Park Commons. Each year thousands of people fill the Lincoln Park commons area to take in over 120 arts and crafts displays, children’s activities, over 30 food vendors, live entertainment and much more. Estimates are that over 100,000 people attended these events in 2022.
  • 5K Run. Nearly 400 runners participated in last year’s event. The event has proven so popular that we added an “Under- 10-years-old” category to accommodate the interests of even our youngest runners!
