DuBois, PA – This Friday and Saturday, it’s a celebration of your friends and neighbors in your hometown. It’s DuBois Community Days! Lots of music, performances, games, activities, and much more for free, plus food for sale! Keep reading for the full schedule and parade lineup.

Keep reading for EVERYTHING you need to know in one easy location!

Most activities are completely free, but remember to bring some extra cash for that delicious food!

This is the 28th year for Community Days.

The goal is to create a community event that everyone can get behind and participate in. Only local non-profit groups benefit financially from the event.

Individual DVFD hose companies and other non-profits are allowed to sell food and other items to raise funds. Every group, both non-profit or for-profit companies that participate in the event, must contribute back to the event in some non-monetary way.

This is not a fundraiser for the DVFD. All monies donated are used to offset the costs of the event.

This year’s Grand Parade Marshall, former Steeler and 4-time Super Bowl champ Jon Kolb. Jon will do an interview with Channel 11’s Alby Oxenreiter at 2:15 on the Cherry Amphitheater and then be the Grand Marshall at 5 p.m.
