The Pelham Palooza began under Mayor Don Murphy in anticipation of the City of Pelham’s Golden Jubilee in 2014. The Pelham Beautification Board was given the task to put together a community wide event celebrating Pelham.
Pelhambration (2013) ~ Golden Jubilee (2014) ~ Pelham Palooza (2015 & 2016) have been fun and original in their own right, each year growing and expanding to meet our communities’ needs.
We feature local artisans, performers, food vendors and music in the main arena of the Pelham Civic Complex & Ice Arena, while the practice arena features free ice-skating. Outside are children’s activities including a bungee trampoline and a craft with Home Depot. A few new outside activities will be featured in May.
In 2015, we joined forces with iHeart Media, 103.7The Q, to host a Just Show Up Show to either kick-off or wrap up the event. The result has been fantastic with crowds growing each year.
Our Pelham Palooza has taken on a life of its own and we are excited to see where it leads us!
