Join the locals of the beautiful town of Littleton as they celebrate 90 years of “Community and Friendship” through their Western Welcome Week. The festival started in 1929 and was founded by then editor of the Littleton Independent, Houstoun Waring.
It was formerly called “Homecoming”, which calls on everyone who has ever visited or lived in Littleton to come home to join and be part of this celebration. Its name was changed to Western Welcome Week in 1962 after Littleton’s Chamber of Commerce decided to extend the days for celebration and activities.
