We are excited to announce that the 2021 Americana Festival will be held on Monday, July 5th.


With Governor Dewine's announcement that he will remove COVID-related health guidelines once the State reaches 50 cases per 100,000 people, the recent positive trends in the number of COVID-19 cases, and the COVID-19 vaccine rolling out to more of the country‚Äôs population, we have made the decision to begin preparation for this year's festival.  WHETHER WE WILL BE ABLE TO ACTUALLY HOLD THE FESTIVAL AS PLANNED WILL DEPEND ON DECISIONS MADE AT THE STATE AND LOCAL LEVEL.


Our committees are already working hard to make this year's festival successful.  Please check this website in the upcoming weeks for updated information regarding the 2021 Americana Festival.


We are excited about the opportunity to bring our community together again for a wonderful festival this year. 


The Centerville-Washington Township Americana Festival started in 1972 as a sidewalk sale promoted by the city's downtown merchants.  Typically more than 85,000 people will attend the festival and more than 100 volunteers will be working behind the scenes to make it all happen. In 2011 the Festival was the winner of the Best of Dayton Award for 4th of July events.  Read more about the Americana Festival.
