80th Annual
Wednesday, July 13th - Saturday, July 16th, 2022
The Strongsville Chamber of Commerce is excited to sponsor the 80th Annual Homecoming Festival this summer. The Homecoming Festival is a fun-filled community celebration held annually on the Strongsville Commons, located at the corner of Rt. 42 (Pearl Road) and Rt. 82 (Royalton Road), one of the busiest intersections in Cuyahoga County. This year the festival will take place July 13th-16th and promises to be bigger and better than ever.

A sponsorship of Homecoming is a great opportunity to express your support for our community and advertise your business. We anticipate a large and enthusiastic crowd this year, especially on Saturday when Homecoming concludes with a fireworks display that can be viewed from the Commons. Your company name will be displayed on our full color, state of the art digital sign (for 2 weeks) and on your sponsorship signage displayed during the week of Homecoming. Both display locations are at the Rt. 82 & Rt. 42 intersection.  Your Sponsorship will also include your name listed on our website and in our newsletter.
