The first Heritage Day event was held in Oostburg in 1976 to celebrate America's Bi-Centennial. Every other year the residents of Oostburg, and eventually the Chamber of Commerce, continued the tradition as a downtown community celebration along Center Avenue.
Carrying the torch, 2017 marks the inaugural AugustFest at Veteran's Park. The park offers outstanding amenities for events & festivals - a band shell to host live music, concessions stand, playground, sports facilities, and a spacious open setting.
Veteran's Park, thanks to the Oostburg Civic Pride effort to improve the quality of life in the village, has seen many recent additions and upgrades. The Chamber of Commerce is proud to host our first AugustFest there.
Oostburg AugustFest is produced by the Oostburg Area Chamber of Commerce and a team of volunteers from Oostburg's business community. Special thanks to all sponsors and the Village of Oostburg for making this event possible!
