Claim to Fame: Jubilee Day ™ is the largest, longest running one-day street fair on the east coast attracting up to 70,000 attendees. The fair originated in 1923 as an agricultural and merchants ‘thank you’ for the support of the community. This annual event features more than 300 vendors from near and far offering food, games, arts & crafts, business information, retail products, carnival rides and more. There is a Children’s Area with activities for the very young, and live entertainment on two stages.

Jubilee Day ™ is held on the 3rd Thursday in June.

The  festival takes place on Main Street from York Street to Walnut Street and on Market Street from Simpson Street to Strawberry Avenue.

New Year’s Eve: Wrench Drop
The galvanized steel wrench commemorates the borough’s founders — mechanics who settled in the area to make and repair wagons that were traveling west after crossing the Susquehanna River in the early 19th century. The town celebrates the New Year from 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. with the annual drop of a wrench in front of the Washington Fire Company at 53 E. Main Street. www.wrenchdrop.org.
