I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to the City of Leominster. Our community is rich in tradition and filled with opportunities for recreational adventure and economic success. Our residents and business owners take pride in their City and showcase its beauty and vitality throughout the year at community events both in the heart of downtown and at our city-owned apple orchard, Sholan Farms.
Leominster is also known as the "Plastics Capital." Our first manufacturers were pioneers of their trade. From the production of combs in the 1700's to the development of the original pink flamingo in the 1950's, today we are a hub for business specializing in innovative mold making techniques.
I invite you to come hike on our twenty-five miles of trails, tour our beautiful historic buildings and visit the myriad of locally-owned shops and restaurants that make our community unique. Our city truly embraces all four seasons. Our downtown Winter and Summer Strolls, our Apple Blossom and Scarecrow Festivals in the spring and fall at Sholan Farms and the celebration of our native son at the Johnny Appleseed Festival in September, attract thousands of visitors from throughout Worcester County and beyond, who come to enjoy our commitment to simple family fun.

Whether you are considering visiting or relocating here, please allow me to extend a warm welcome from our mid-size city with a small-town charm.
Dean J. Mazzarella,
Mayor City of Leominster
