Celebrating our 27th Anniversary!
We are dedicated to preserving and protecting Theodore Roosevelt's home in Oyster Bay on Long Island.
Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Town Clerk Richard LaMarca invite residents to Oyster Bay Hamlet during Fourth of July weekend to celebrate ‘Teddy’s Homecoming Jubilee.’ Residents are invited to gather at the Oyster Bay Bandstand on Sunday, July 3rd at 2 p.m. to see President Roosevelt, who will be portrayed by famed Reprisor Joe Wiegand, come into town in an antique car and deliver a famous speech. The bandstand is located on Audrey Avenue and Shore Road, by the Oyster Bay Post Office.
“What better way to celebrate the American spirit in advance of Independence Day than seeing our 26th President visit the place he once called home, the hamlet of Oyster Bay,” said Supervisor Saladino. “This is a great opportunity for residents of all ages to step back in time and welcome President Roosevelt as he returns home to Oyster Bay.”
‘Teddy’s Homecoming Jubilee’ is hosted by The Friends of Sagamore Hill and the Oyster Bay Main Street Association, in partnership with the Town of Oyster Bay. Famed Theodore Roosevelt Reprisor Joseph Wiegand will arrive at the Oyster Bay stop on the Long Island Rail Road, from which he will head to the Oyster Bay Rail Road Museum. He will then be driven in an antique 1900s-era classic car, arriving at the bandstand to reenact President Roosevelt’s famous 1903 Independence Day speech.
“We are so pleased to partner with the Oyster Bay Main Street Association and The Friends of Sagamore Hill to welcome home our most famous resident, President Theodore Roosevelt,” said Town Clerk LaMarca. “We hope all residents and their families join us for this wonderful celebration.”
Following the reenactment of the President’s speech, residents are invited to join President Roosevelt for a ‘meet and greet’ at Teddy’s Bully Bar on Audrey Avenue. The establishment will offer signature cocktails celebrating President Roosevelt, with a portion of proceeds going to The Friends of Sagamore Hill.
