About First Town Days

Our "Other" Purposes...

Beyond all the fun and excitement that the First Town Days Festival brings to our community, their are other purposes that we serve. The First Town Days Festival Committee works and exists to support various projects at our beautiful festival venue, Tuscora Park.

In addition to raising funds to support those projects, First Town Days also takes pride in sponsoring a number of direct Scholarships each year.  These awards, known as the Al Maloney Scholarships, are awarded to graduates of our local Tuscarawas County High Schools.

In addition to the Al Maloney Scholarships we also have a Queen's Scholarship Pageant Program that provides scholarships to the Pageant winners through the generous support of the local Post of the New Philadelphia VFW.  The winners of our Scholarship Pageant travel the state throughout the year as ambassadors of our Festival, New Philadelphia, and Tuscarawas County.

We strive to support and promote Tuscora Park and to promote a sense of community for the citizens of the City of New Philadelphia and Tuscarawas County as a whole. And of course...to also have fun doing it.

Come enjoy the 2019, 42nd Annual, First Town Days Festival.
