The Trumbull County Fine Arts Council (FACT) announces today that the highly successful Warren Homecoming, held for the first time last September, will be back again this year.

This year’s dates are September 22-24, 2017.

The whole city got into the spirit of Homecoming, and we are very happy to be the organizing sponsor again for 2017,” said James Shuttic, FACT Chairman. Warren Homecoming will be comprised of events organized and hosted by individual organizations. A Homecoming committee, overseen by FACT, will coordinate and assist these individual organizations, but their principal job will be to promote the weekend as a whole.”Many of the groups participating in Warren Homecoming operate on very small budgets that do not allow for much promotion or advertising. By raising funds for an overall marketing campaign for the weekend, we are able to promote in ways that would not otherwise be possible,” added Shuttic.

The two largest 2016 events will both repeat this year. The hugely popular “Taste of Warren”will again provide the Big Top under which everyone will have a chance to sample Warren’s iconic foods in one, highly-social location. “Taste of Warren” will again be sponsored by the Trumbull 100, Diane Sauer Chevrolet and the Tribune Chronicle. Trumbull 100 President Jordan Taylor said: “We were thrilled to be part of the first Warren Homecoming as a sponsor of the Taste of Warren event. It was great seeing the community come together to put on a weekend full of events that reconnected people to Warren.We are looking forward to participating in Warren Homecoming again this year.”

Another repeating event will be the “NFL Legends of Warren Reunion” sponsored by the Warren Gridiron Club. This is actually several events over the weekend, including Sunday’s “Legend’s Celebration Dinner,” and Monday’s “Legends” golf outing. “Last year’s NFL Legends weekend was the most successful fund-raising event in the Gridiron Club’s long history,” says club President Virginia Holmes, “and that was because of the support of the community and our decision to move it to Warren Homecoming weekend, which significantly boosted attendance. We have some new surprises in store for 2017 and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Warren Homecoming.”

Another 2016 sponsor, the Warren Area Board of Realtors is also looking forward to this year. Said WABOR President-elect Darlene Mink-Crouse, “Last year was such a successful and enjoyable event, we are really looking forward to another opportunity to showcase Warren’s many beautiful homes to both residents and visitors.”
