The annual Clyde Firemen's Festival takes place every August centered around the
15th of the month. Enjoy several days of family, friends and old
fashion fun. Clyde is known throughout the upstate New York area
for its spectacular fireworks display every August 15th. Sponsored by
the Clyde Fire Department.
This festival offers everything from a carnival with games and contests for
the kids, to one of New York's most breathtaking annual fireworks displays
that is always held on the 15th of August at 9:00 PM. Once you've seen it you
will never miss this weekend in August again.
The annual Fall Community Harvest Festival brings all
facets of the Clyde community together for an afternoon of fun, conversation
and relaxation. The afternoon starts with a Farmers Market in the
Village park with foods, flowers and crafts offered for purchase. Visitors
can enjoy hay rides, cider, donuts, face painting, games and a haunted
house. Enjoy the downtown window art done by our Jr./Sr. High School
students and decorated pumpkins by our elementary children. A nice
way to spend a fall afternoon.
The winter months in Clyde are just as eventful. Kick off the holiday
season with the Chamber of Commerce Hometown Christmas which takes place
the first Saturday of December. Holiday decorations give Clyde a
warm festive atmosphere from one end of our village to the other. Join community
elders and youngsters as they come together
in the early evening for a traditional tree lighting ceremony with caroling
and music in the beautiful Village Central Park.
Spring in Clyde brings boaters on the Erie Canal
and travels from the wine region to Lake Ontario.
Bring your children to the annual Easter Egg Hunt sponsored by the Chamber
of Commerce. See who will find the "golden egg" for that
special prize. A morning of sharing and visiting.
