Community Events

The City of Andover hosts four major events annually, all in Central Park: the Police and Fire Festival (June), Concert in the Park (June), Greater Andover Days (September/October), and Hometown Christmas (December).

The Police and Fire Festival is family friendly, fun-filled event featuring demonstrations by both departments, games and prizes for those of all ages, and so much more!  It also gives the community a chance to meet and get to know our local first responders.

Starting in 2013, the Andover Convention and Visitors Bureau has been bringing an annual concert to Andover Central Park as a community and tourist event. During this year's 5th annual concert, ground will be broken for the Amphitheater which will provide a permanent venue for live music and other events in Central Park for decades to come.

Greater Andover Days (GAD) is packed with activities for everyone in the family!   Check out the Facebook page to catch a glimpse at the fun from past events and stay up-to-date on this year's plans!
Hometown Christmas has been bringing the community together since 1980, starting off as a spaghetti eating gathering in a local shopping center.  Today's event includes festivities throughout Central Park, including inside City Hall, The Lodge, and the Public Library.
