Foxborough Founders Day is Saturday, June 10, 2017 – Theme: The History of Foxborough

San-Diego-Fireworks-Displays-2010From humble beginnings, Foxborough Founders Day has grown into a wonderful celebration of civic pride and a chance for the community to come together for a day of fun, food and fellowship sandwiched between the pageantry of a parade and an awesome display of fireworks.

The 2017 theme is “The History of Foxborough”

Foxborough-based organizations and businesses are encouraged to build upon this theme as they prepare their entries for the parade. Many will carry the theme over to their field activities where those non-profit organizations will provide entertainment food and fun for all in attendance.

Every non-profit, civic and religious organization in Foxborough is encouraged to participate in the field festivities and raise funds for their various organizations by selling food, running games and raffles or selling novelties and other products. Together, the people and businesses of Foxborough will show the rest of the world why we call Foxborough Home Sweet Home!

Please Donate!

Donations are gratefully accepted year round and make a huge difference! Foxborough Founders Day is an all-volunteer effort and your donation of any amount helps defray the cost of the fireworks, parade, and other Founders Day events! Mail your check to Foxborough Founders Day Committee, 40 South Street, Foxborough Mass 02035
