WEST HAVEN, Aug. 5, 2021 — Watch the Centennial Savin Rock Festival on the city’s YouTube channel.

Amid a weekend of fabulous weather and crowds 5,000 strong, the festival, presented by the City of West Haven Centennial Celebration Committee, paid homage to the enduring legacy of “the Rock” while marking the community’s 100th anniversary.

The festival, held in historic Old Grove Park on Friday and Saturday, July 30-31, was part of a six-month series of free events commemorating West Haven’s 1921 birth and its incorporation by the General Assembly as Connecticut’s youngest town.

The shoreline festival showcased West Haven’s past 100 years and the time-honored recipe — musical groups, rides, games, mouthwatering food — that made the 20th-century Savin Rock Park so storied as “the playground of New England.”

Watch the festival on West Haven YouTube.
