JEROMESVILLE – Although the name has changed slightly, the inspiration behind the annual JeromeFest has always remained the same.
Fun, family and community.
Previously known as Jeromesville Homecoming, this year’s JeromeFest will take place on Saturday, July 30 at Lewis Memorial Park.

Scheduled activities include the Car Show from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. and a SOBOS concert from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
SOBOS is a family band based in Wooster and the name SOBOS is an acronym for Some of the Best Old Songs. The band has been playing classic rock since 2010.
Lions Club President Linda Nethero said, This Jeromesville Lions service project is one of my favorites. The festival gives the community the opportunity to come together and greet old friends and make new acquaintances in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
Nethero emphasized that all proceeds will go to the Lions Club Scholarship Fund as well as other Lions projects.
The Kenneth Wise Historical Museum will feature a special display of cookbooks and will also feature newly acquired items in the museum.
“Past and current residents of the area enjoy reminiscing about the good old days,” Nethero added. “And new residents or guests get a sense of how close and friendly our community is.
“We hope this event can even inspire others to volunteer in the future,” she said.
