Mission of Homer Soda Festival

To expand your taste buds' exposure to flavorful soda pop while providing a unique festival experience with the backdrop of Main Street Americana that is inviting to both young and old, bringing generations back to downtown America.

Vision for the festival

We bring together family owned bottlers from all across the country to one place where you can enjoy their family traditions of flavor and fizz.  We create an environment where you can not only taste the unique sodas, but meet many of the actual bottlers themselves.  The food is high quality and unique, the vendors are all hand crafted, genuine artistic creations, reclaimed relics, and antiques.  The music is Americana bluegrass/roots that has stood the test of time much like the bottlers.  Everything works to bring generations together to make memories with each other and take them all back to the Main Street USA of yesteryear.

 

Car Events

There will 2 separate car events for the day, 10am & 4pm.  The first show will be hosted by the Sundowner's and will be a Classic Car show.  The second will be an antique car cruise in and will be open to pre-1980's vehicles.

Music

We will have Americana music playing at the Main Street Stage all day long and Blues/Rock at the Car Show Stage from 12:30pm-7pm!

Kids' Activities

The kids can enjoy inflatables, interactive vendors such as Alpha dog laser tag, and the massive bubbles.   This is a family friendly event; there will be no alcohol at the Homer Soda Festival.

Bring your friends and family out to a Main Street USA event that will be the must attend festival of the year!
