The 2023 Santa Parade & Tree Lighting, Hosted by the Newburyport Rotary Club is scheduled for Sunday, November 26th, offering all the holiday cheer that’s to be expected of a downtown yuletide celebration – but there’s a twist. In this most nautical of cities, Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive by boat. Honoring the Clipper City’s heritage as the birthplace of the U.S. Coast Guard, Santa and Mrs. Claus make their first local appearance waving from a Coast Guard boat on the Merrimack River before docking at the boardwalk for a joyful procession through the downtown area to the traditional tree lighting in Market Square.

Kids and families gather on the Newburyport waterfront to await the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus followed by a short parade that ends in Market Square with caroling and the Christmas tree lighting. To kick off the official ceremony, the Mayor gives Santa the key to the City, which is closely guarded and held at The Brass Lyon. The caroling is jointly led by the Newburyport and Triton High School Bands and Chorus with spirited participation from locals capped with Santa hats as they usher in the holiday season. It is important to know that the start time for this event is approximate as the Merrimack River tides can impact the arrival time of Santa & Mrs. Claus. We always recommend arriving early because once our VIP guests’ board their sleigh, this magical event proceeds quickly. Although the official event time posted on the Newburyport Rotary Club website is from 3 – 5:30 pm., they have provided us with more details. Santa & Mrs. Claus are expected to depart on the Coast Guard boat at 3:30 pm. The boat will go up the River towards Michael’s Harborside so that folks can get a glimpse of our VIP’s on the water. The parade start time is expected to be 3:45 – 4 pm by the time everyone is lined up and ready to go and it will take approximately 15 minutes for them to reach Market Square and another 15 minutes for caroling. The tree should be lit between 4:15 – 4:30.

Traditionally held on the Sunday afternoon immediately after Thanksgiving, the Newburyport Santa Parade & Tree Lighting is the much-anticipated kickoff of the area’s official holiday season.

Over the next few weeks Santa will pop up at a host of public events in the area, including a series of tours by firetruck (in Byfield, Newburyport, and Salisbury), and a wide variety of story times’ and parties at local libraries and recreational farms.

In early December in Newburyport, Santa takes up residence at Santa’s Workshop which is festively decorated by the Newburyport Horticultural Society, offering visits and photos with the kids in December. Check the Newburyport.com Events Calendar for the specific days and times.

The Newburyport Santa Parade & Tree Lighting is great example of teamwork and event collaboration for the benefit of the community. This special annual event is Hosted and organized by a large group of local volunteers from the Newburyport Rotary Club with help from the Merrimack River Coast Guard Station, providing transportation for our special VIP’s and the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce who provides the Market Square Christmas tree and our other beautiful downtown Newburyport decorations.

As part of the Chamber’s beautification program, they are in charge of all of the holiday decorations for our city as well as the beautiful hanging flowers you may notice during the Spring and Summer months. When purchasing one of our Newburyport VIP Cards you are able to donate a part of the proceeds directly to the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce, these funds are allocated specifically to the beautification program.

Operation Backpack, Pettengill House

The Pettengill House has begun its collection and signup’s for Operation Backpack, an annual backpack and school supply drive with a mission to ensure that students throughout our community, start the school year “ready to learn.” Operation Backpack provides NEW backpacks and school supplies to students in pre–k through twelfth grade who attend school in the Amesbury, Newburyport, Pentucket and Triton school districts. If you are able to donate, please refer to the list at the bottom of the article to view most needed items and drop off locations throughout: Amesbury, Salisbury, Newburyport and Rowley. Please drop off donations by Thursday, August 17th. Distribution of backpacks and supplies to families in need will begin the following week. If you need assistance with backpacks and school supplies for your children, please sign up to request an Operation Backpack appointment

Let’s work together as a community to make Operation Backpack 2023 the most successful collection year ever! Help spread the word to family, friends and neighbors so that we can collectively have a positive impact for local students. Consider partnering with co-workers, family or friends to spread awareness and collect items. Local Newburyport Bank employees set a goal to “stuff the van” by working as a team to collect donations from bank employees in addition to the Newburyport, Storey Avenue drive that was hosted from 9 am –  3 pm, on Friday, 7/28 where they collected additional donations.

Operation Backpack is a great opportunity for our youth to understand the importance of community giving and to realize that necessities like school supplies and backpacks are unaffordable items for some families. Don’t grab just any backpack, consider involving kids in the purchase and donation process and encourage them to make thoughtful decisions that will result in smiles and back to school excitement for other students.

If you prefer to shop online instead, you can visit the Operation Backpack Amazon Wishlist to shop for most needed items and have them shipped directly to The Pettengill House. You can also help this community wide effort by sharing the Pettengill House Operation Back Pack Facebook Post with your friends and family.

Newburyport Greek Food Festival – Delicious Homemade Food

Featured Video Play Icon

Enjoy delicious, authentic Greek food at the 2023 Newburyport Greek Food Festival at Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church located at 7 Harris street in Newburyport. The Festival will run from 11:30 am – 8 pm on Friday, July 28th and Saturday, July 29th as well as 11:30 am – 3 pm on Sunday, July 30th. There will be live Greek music brought to you by OPA entertainment, on Friday and Saturday evenings from 4 – 8 pm.

I am certain that I’m not the only local resident who eats at the Newburyport Greek Food Festival three days in a row in order to try and satisfy my craving for this wonderful, homemade Greek food! You will be delighted by all the Greek entrees including: the famous Lamb Shanks, Moussaka, Pastichio, Chicken & Lamb Kabobs, Gyros, Loukaniko, Keftethes, Spinach Pie, Greek Salad, Stuffed Grape Leaves, and Fish “Plaki” (Friday Only). Coffee & Greek Pastries including Baklava, Galaktobouriko, Koulourakia, and more!

You can purchase food to eat on the run, such as a Gyro, or you can take your time and sit down for a relaxing meal outside or inside the air-conditioned church hall. My recommendation to my fellow foodies, is not to wait until the last day of the Festival to visit, because some of the most popular items may be sold out!

For 2023, the Greek Food Festival will host a few Greek vendors just inside the foyer of the church, a perfect place to find quality gifts. Taste & Art of Greece will have a fantastic display of jewelry, handbags, home items, ceramics, candles, etc. made from Greek artisans.

While the Greek Food Festival is not an official Yankee Homecoming Event, it has become a very popular tradition to kick off  Yankee Homecoming week at Greek Food Festival.

How many times will you visit the Newburyport Greek Food Festival during Yankee Homecoming to enjoy delicious homemade Mediterranean cuisine?
