Every August, the West Branch community celebrates Herbert Hoover with food, music, rides, and of course, the Hoover-Ball National Championships. Due to the Corona Virus pandemic, most of the festival events have been cancelled. Hoover’s Hometown Days will return in full in 2021 on August 6 & 7! This multi-day event is organized by The City of West Branch, Main Street West Branch, the Hoover Presidential Foundation, the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site National Park Service, and businesses and residents. Watch this space for other events coming this August in celebration of Herbert Hoover’s birthday!
