Oxford Day 2022 is April 23!
After two years with non Oxford Day, we are holding a smaller, simpler event primarily focused on our Oxford resident families and businesses. One of our most treasured events will begin at 8:30 – the Blessing of the Pets, followed by the Talbot Humane Dog Walk.
From there the day unfolds with a Dog Show in Town Park, Bake Sales, breakfast offered by Oxford Community Center, and Oxford Museum opening.
The Parade starts at 11 and marches right along Morris Street. Watch for the piper who leads off an assortment of floats, fire engines, bands, old cars, walkers and animals—it’s always uniquely Oxford!
Plan to relax, walk about, keep social distance, and enjoy the day.
If you want to experience Oxford from the water, visit the Oxford Bellevue Ferry which has been in existence since 1683! The Oxford Ferry will welcome free walk-on passengers throughout the day!
Your hunger can be satisfied at many venues around town including, of course, our fine restaurants, and also booths in Town Park and Causeway Park, our churches and the Oxford Market.
There will be designated parking areas.
Be aware that Morris Street and some side streets close to traffic before and during the Parade, from about 9:30-noon. Allow extra time to reach Oxford boatyards and for moving about town. Residents should plan their days with the expectation of delays in driving.
For a brief introduction to Oxford Day, you are invited to watch this video. The music is “Chicken Fried” written by Zac Brown and performed by the US Navy Band “Country Current” at an earlier Oxford Day.
IF IT RAINS: Oxford Day is a rain or shine event.
