Teddy Roosevelt Weekend is one of Newcomb’s favorite events with fun things to see and do for the whole family. A great deal of planning, preparation, and scheduling by dedicated committee members always brings a variety of activities all throughout town, all weekend long. Some are centered around the anniversary of TR’s famous trek out of Mt. Marcy’s wilderness into Newcomb to become the 26th President.

TR Weekend is Newcomb’s premier event, celebrating Theodore Roosevelt’s journey out of the High Peaks Wilderness from Newcomb to the White House following President McKinley’s assassination in Buffalo NY. Events are planned over the entire weekend throughout Newcomb with cultural and informative entertainment for all ages.

Please note: TR Weekend is running a week earlier in 2019 to make sure they can have Joe Wiegand return as TR.
