The idea of "Old Home Week" in New Hampshire was begun in 1899 by Governor Frank West Rollins. Eventually, many towns shortened this to "Old Home Days," but continued in the tradition of celebrating the history and community spirit of individual towns.
Canaan Old Home Days are celebrated on the first weekend in August each year. Beginning in 1984, the official Canaan Old Home Days Committee was established which now leads us in fun and festivities every year. We thank all who participate in the committee and the events. Your work keeps us connected!
