In 2023, Northfield Massachusetts will mark its historic beginning in 1673 after centuries of settlement by Native people, including the Sokoki of the Western Abenaki. Our 350th Anniversary theme, Reconnecting Northfield, is inspired by the beautiful Connecticut River (Kwenitekw in Abenaki) which runs through our town. Northfield is more than spectacular geography. For generations, its people have had a significant impact on our community, our region and even the world!
After over two years of planning, a festive year-long celebration is ready! It will be a celebration worthy of the special home we call Northfield. Throughout the year town folk and visitors will enjoy a wide variety of entertaining events, history and children's programs, a symphony performance, grand parade and a spectacular fireworks display! A variety of 350th commemoration memorabilia will be offered at most events and throughout the year.

Welcome to 2023 - Northfield's 350th Year!
