       Our hometown Festival is a highly anticipated community event which draws a large number of visitors and local area neighbors to Milford each April.  Started in 2004, the festival focuses on Milford’s role in the naming of the Ladybug as our state bug and to celebrate Milford’s recognition as a Tree City USA, in observation of Arbor Day. It’s a great day of food, games and entertainment right in our downtown.
