Greater Andover Days (GAD)
2016 Greater Andover Days
"Handfuls of Fun!" September 29 - October 2, 2016

Greater Andover Days (GAD) is a four-day festival offering handfuls of fun, food, and entertainment for the entire family! Over 5,000 people attend GAD annually. The festival includes a food court, KidFest, 5K fun run, parade, fishing clinic, car show, business expo / craft fair, carnival, ice cream social, live entertainment and a fireworks show in Central Park. This year's event will once again include a Friday night tailgate party featuring Radioflyer and a Saturday evening concert featuring Lucky People.

Greater Andover Days began 49 years ago as an effort to unify the citizens of Andover through a shared festival experience. 

Most GAD events are located within the Andover Central Park at 1607 E. Central, unless otherwise indicated on the schedule.

GAD buttons are available for sale at many local locations, which will be shared on this site closer to the festival dates. The button serves as admittance to all the festival fun. Children 5 and under are free. 

Carnival Rides & Games

Ottaway Amusement's carnival rides and games are Thursday through Sunday.

FREE WiFi in Central Park 

Fitting in with the 2016 GAD theme of “Handfuls of Fun!” attendees will get “handfuls” of WiFi… FREE in Central Park this year! That’s right, this year the City of Andover and the Greater Andover Days Planning committee have agreed to provide free WiFi in the park from September 29-October 2. 

Three simple steps will get Festival goers access: 
1. turn on the WiFi functionality of the device
2. search wireless networks
3. connect to “GAD WiFi” 

Part of the rationale for trying the project this year is the massive popularity of Pokémon Go. Individuals of all ages play Pokémon Go in Andover’s Central Park daily. Free WiFi may just be a big enough draw for some to attend GAD who don’t typically. 

See you at GAD…for handfuls of fun and WiFi!
