Theme: Farms and Flowers of Foxborough
Founders Day is the town of Foxboro’s birthday. It is an annual day-long celebration of our town, and the Foxboro Jaycees are well represented — from the parade, to the Booth playground activities such as the membership booth, pony rides, glow stick sales, and plenty of food cooking on the grills!
Founder’s Day begins with a huge parade through Downtown Foxboro. The activities move to Booth Playground, where sports teams, schools, and most of our community and fraternal organizations (such as the Rotary, Jaycees, Doolittle Home, Council on Aging, Historical Society, churches and schools, etc) each set up booths, tents, and kiosks. There’s games, amazing food, and a lot of fun.
That evening, thousands of people bring blankets and chairs to relax and enjoy our spectacular fireworks display over Booth Playground.

The Foxboro Jaycees and Founders Day
Founders Day Parade March – The Jaycees (as many who like, and their family and friends) march in the parade and hand out candy. In 2016 we will have a horse drawn float!
Founders Day Concessions – We sell burgers, hot dogs, salt potatoes etc to the masses that swarm the field during the town celebration of Founders Day. This is the Jaycees’ biggest one-day fund raiser of the year — please be generous!
Founders Day Glow Items – This is where we truly make our money to help support our chapter’s community activities. Please be generous!
