Clermont Celebrates 175-years

Clermont Celebrates 175 Years

The town celebration will be July 5-7, 2024

CLERMONT – The quaint, historic town of Clermont - known for years by its nickname Brick City - will be celebrating 175 years since the first settlers came to the Turkey River and set down roots. Known to many as the home of the Larrabee family and their large home on the hill, Montauk, Clermont boasts many original, historic buildings. In fact, Clermont has six properties that are listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. 

To celebrate Clermont’s long and eventful history, a celebration will be held on July 5th, 6th, and 7th to commemorate the event. Things will kick off on Friday the 5th with a showing of the movie The Straight Story  at the Clermont Public Library, followed in the afternoon and evening by live music, food vendors, a beer garden, bags tournament, and family-friendly games.

Saturday  is a fun-filled day starting with a town parade in the morning. After the parade ends we invite everyone to come to the park to enjoy all the activities we have planned. There will be games and activities for kids, a bouncy house, balloon animals, music for the adults, food vendors, ice cream, a classic car show, and puzzle challenges, just to name a few. The historic Clermont Depot will be open for tours, as will Montauk Historic Site, and the Clermont Museum downtown. Also downtown will be food and historic wagon rides put on by the Clermont Masons. The evening will end with fireworks at dusk. 

Finish the weekend with some pancakes and prayers as the Clermont EMS hosts a pancake breakfast on Sunday followed by an ecumenical church service in the park.
