Monson Summerfest Inc.
First discussed in 1979, a group of people wanted to start an Independence Day celebration focusing on family and community. The first Summerfest was initially held at the Methodist Church, with food, games and other fun events.
From 1980 on, Summerfest moved out onto Main Street due to the overwhelming interest of many non-profit organizations. This was the year Summerfest was incorporated and became a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit entity.
We are currently a venue for local, non-profit groups to raise funds for their ongoing activities. We also host a parade, vendor booths, bands and other various rides/activities! The event has evolved over time into an area attraction that draws roughly 10,000 to 13,000 people.
Help maintain Summerfest's roots by joining us each year to celebrate, keeping us all grounded in what is truly important -- our families, friends and community.

Annual Summerfest Booklet
This year Monson Summerfest turns 40! What an exciting time to be part of the festivities!
We depend on local organizations and businesses like yours to provide support for the parade, fireworks, and special events that are held in celebration of our country’s independence. Your ad in our booklet serves not only as a means to increase publicity, it also lets the community know that you are a proud, caring sponsor who makes local family-friendly events like this possible.
Afghans are back!
This is an exact template used years ago when Summerfest had a rush of orders for this much-desired afghan which features a collection of Famous Monson Landmarks. Be sure to order yours today so that you too can have a piece of Monson History.
