Perrysburg Homecoming Festival kicks off Friday

PERRYSBURG — The Perrysburg Homecoming Festival 2022, presented by the Perrysburg Area Chamber of Commerce, will be held Friday and Saturday.

After two straight September’s without a festival, the festival is scheduled in conjunction with the Perrysburg High School varsity football game v. Sylvania Southview and the school district’s homecoming weekend.

Kicking off the weekend’s festivities is the Perrysburg Pep Rally, hosted by the Country Charm Shoppes, at 4 p.m. on Friday. It will feature food, drinks, kids’ activities, performances and an after party at Six Fifths Distilling from 8-10 p.m.

On Saturday, a parade begins at 10 a.m. along Louisiana Avenue through downtown. Following the parade, a festival will take over the downtown with vendors, artisans, a business marketplace and food trucks.

A main feature of Saturday’s festivities is Fall Festival from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Much of the festival will take place north of the railroad tracks and along portions of East and West Second streets. There will be a Second Street Stage with music, pumpkins, an inflatable corn maze and a magician.

The Heritage Pavilion, near the Louisiana Avenue and West Third Street intersection, will feature educational displays, re-enactors, oral historians, book signings and music.

The Perrysburg Schools and the Perrysburg Schools Foundation will host class reunion parties and a concert at the Commodore Lawn on Saturday night.
