Boyertown Day & Casket Races 

          Building a Better Boyertown has made the difficult decision to postpone the Boyertown Day event due to staffing and material shortages affecting planned participation for the casket race. This event was scheduled for May 21, 2022.  We at Building a Better Boyertown are pleased to provide our community with cherished memories and heartfelt support. We will revisit Boyertown Day & Casket Races in 2023! Thank you for your continued support of our non-profit organization.
