Welcome to our Celebrations and Events page! Here we list upcoming events as well as tell you about recent events relating to Smithfield and its culture and history. Smithfield celebrates two events yearly with importance to our local history, Health Days and Founder's Day. Check back frequently to see what will be happening.
year for Founder’s Day, the Historical Society wants to celebrate our
veterans. Founder’s Day will be
celebrated on October 10, 2015 in the Historic Smithfield Tabernacle. There will be an open house at 4 pm and then
a short program at 5 pm. We will have
booths with displays of artifacts and pictures from past wars. We have a special treat of having some audio
and video interviews of Smithfield residents who served during World War II and the Korean
War that will be playing during the open house.
We would also like to recognize any past and current residents of
Smithfield who served in the many branches of the military. If you are a veteran or know of one, please
let them know we invite them to join us for our program. There will be a few speakers and some fun
music from the WWII era, as well as patriotic songs for everyone to enjoy. There will be refreshments afterward. See you there!
