ICAG Presents - Interlaken's Olde Home Day Festival - June 7 and 8, 2024

- Sponsored by The Interlaken Community Action Group

HISTORY

 Interlaken will be bustling with the activities associated with Olde Home Day. Some research into the phenomenon of the “Olde Home Days” shows that most of them were inaugurated in the very late 19th or early 20th century, just about the time that the majority of the population of the United States was shifting from being rural to urban. These festivals were an opportunity for the first generation of city dwellers to return to their hometowns and celebrate the rural experience of their youth.

    Diane Bassette Nelson, former president of the Interlaken Historical Society and one of the organizers of Olde Home Day. “It goes back to about 1930 in Interlaken,” she said. “Then it died back a bit after the 1980s and came back in the mid-1990s, and it has been going since.”

-DONATIONS-
