After careful consideration and discussion with our event partners, it has been decided to postpone Charlie Adams Day until 2021. While we are as dedicated as ever to supporting Newkirk and its historic downtown district, the health and well-being of our volunteers and attendees come first. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause. Newkirk Main Street looks forward to continuing our mission and we hope to partner with you in the future. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy.
Charlie Adams Day is a community heritage festival involving Newkirk Main Street and the Newkirk Community Historical Society.
This is a Pet Free and Smoke Free event.
"Celebrate the town of Newkirk's heritage at Charlie Adams Day, a fun-filled festival for all ages. Numerous barbecue teams will be out in full force competing for top prizes and providing fantastic food to festival-goers. Get a tasting kit and enjoy traditional barbecue favorites like brisket, pork, chicken and beans, and then vote for your favorites. A handful of skilled Dutch oven teams will also provide demonstrations throughout the day. Witness what kinds of yummy desserts can be prepared in a Dutch oven and then sample the results. Another major part of Charlie Adams Day will be the Cruisin' for Charlie Poker Run and car show. All vehicles are welcome to participate in this fun event with the chance of winning cash prizes. Charlie Adams Day will also feature booths filled with arts and crafts, as well as multiple vendors and games for children. Visitors to this small -town festival will also enjoy country music, storytelling and re-enactors. All entertainment is free, so make your way to Newkirk for plenty of live entertainment by local performers."
