Old Home Week Beginnings

The inaugural Old Home Week was held during the last week of August 1948. Mr. Frederick O. Creighton, Woodstock's mayor at the time, had the idea for one week of numerous events. A Charter Member of the Woodstock Rotary Club, local entrepreneur, and community volunteer, Mr. Creighton's idea gained support from the Rotary Club, and Old Home Week became a reality. For its first two years, the Rotary Club led the organization of Old Home Week until the annual festival had grown too large to be handled by a single group. As a result, organization from that point on would be assisted by the local Y's Mens Club, Elks and Lions Clubs, Royal Canadian Legion branch, and other interested individuals. To this day, Old Home Week remains a large community effort.
