Due to concerns around Covid-19 the Cy Young Days Festival Committee has decided to cancel the 20th. Annual Festival June, 26-28, 2020. This was a hard decision to make and comes with a heavy heart. We understand how important the Cy Young Days Festival has become to everyone involved, but in the best interest of our patrons, vendors, attendees and volunteers, we feel this is the best decision at this time.
The festival committee appreciates the support of the community and our generous sponsors over the years. It is in the best interest of the community and our local businesses not to move forward with festival plans for 2020.
While we are sad to cancel this fun summertime event, we feel it is more important to prioritize the health, safety and financial impact on all involved. We look forward to working with our patrons and community in 2021. In the meantime we encourage you to continue to support our local businesses, non profit organizations and athletic teams as we all navigate these unpredictable circumstances. Follow us on facebook and the web for the latest news and information.

Congratulations to 16 year old Hannah Levengood of New Philadelphia, Ohio for being named 2020-2021 Cy Young Days Festival Art contest winner. Hannah captured the committees theme and mission to reflect the fun, tradition, and history of the festival, Cy Young and baseball in her artwork which shows a portrait of Cy Young, doing what he did best, hurling a baseball.
The contest was open to artists of all ages and skill levels. Hannah's art will be featured on festival t-shirts and posters as well as social media channels. She will be presented with a cash prize, t-shirt, signed baseball and more.
Thanks to all of our sponsors, visitors, vendors, The Newcomerstown community and downtown business owners for all your support! This would not be possible without your help. Another successful festival has come to an end and the work is just beginning for next year. Please remember to thank and support those who support the Festival.
A special Thank You to our Guest of Honor Randy Jones, former National League left-handed pitcher for the San Diego Padres, who won the Cy Young award in 1976 with the Padres.
