The Harrington Car Show

The Harrington Car Show is sponsored by The Studebaker Garage, in memory of Allen Jay Barth. It is held annually on the 3rd Saturday in May.

The main street is lined with vintage cars and the town is buzzing with people, food trucks and other community activities. It’s a great small-town event with a fun family friendly atmosphere.

Harrington Hometown Christmas

This annual event is our kickoff to the Christmas season.  Santa rides in on a fire truck just in time for pictures with kids at the historic Opera House. The town is decorated with lights and the local Christmas tree is lit at an evening tree lighting ceremony. The Memorial Hall is filled with vendors for gift shopping, food, treats and music performances by our local students. The day is filled with lots of family friendly holiday activities.
