Despite the heat, it has been another great summer in Wharton and it’s not over yet!

In August we have Canal Day on August 20th. This year is going to be extra special because we will be having the ribbon cutting and dedication of Morris Canal Restoration that has been taking place for many years. For more information on Canal Day click here.

Also on August 20th is the Annual Fireworks. Festivities start at 7:30 pm. The fireworks show starts when it's dark.

Our next concerts in our summer concert series are Almost U2 on August 26th and Pure Petty on September 23rd. Both are from 6-9 at Betty Poyer Field.

This fall we are looking forward to our annual job fair, the last concert in our summer concert series, and HalloWharton. Check back for more information on these and all of our events here and on our social media accounts!
