WESTERN WELCOME WEEK, INC. is a stand alone 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides an annual community celebration in the greater Littleton area. Western Welcome Week began in the late 1920s, and has been held every year since (limited in 2020 due to the pandemic). Western Welcome Week includes over 30 events, produced by over 20 organizations, benefiting dozens of local civic and charitable organizations. Western Welcome Week relies on support through ticket sales, vendor fees, event entry fees, private donations, individual and corporate sponsorships.
Western Welcome Week is not a department of the City of Littleton nor of South Suburban Parks and Recreation District (both of which are valued Community Partners), nor any other organization. Without the support of the community and gracious sponsors, Western Welcome Week would not be able to continue.
The 95th annual celebration will begin on Friday, August 11 and continues for 9 more days through Sunday, August 20, 2023. Festival Day, which includes the Firefighter’s Children’s Parade, the Grand Parade, the annual Craft & Home Improvement Fair, free entertainment, and concessions by local civic groups, will be Saturday, August 19.
Volunteerism and support from the business community are what make Western Welcome Week a success year after year. The goal of Western Welcome Week is to nurture community spirit, bring together residents and businesses, to support service clubs and nonprofits by creating an opportunity for fundraising, and to provide festivities and entertainment for families, friends and neighbors. In planning Western Welcome Week, the board pledges to remain open to new ideas, respect past traditions and be aware of present day needs with a vision for tomorrow.
