Buzzard Frame


Hinckley, Ohio is famously known for its annual Buzzard’s Day celebration in mid-March. The world-renowned event is proudly sponsored and organized by the Hinckley Chamber of Commerce, comprised of  local residents and business-owners invested in this vibrant community located mid-way between Cleveland and Akron. Proceeds benefit local scholarships.

Buzzard Day is Sunday, March 19, 2017

Plan ahead for the 60th Annual Buzzard Day in beautiful downtown Hinckley, complete with the all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast and all around fun! Click here to view the developing schedule of events.

Help Make the 60th Buzzard Sunday the Best Ever

Hinckley, Ohio is about more than Buzzard Day – it’s community. Hinckley natives – send us your favorite photos, stories, home movies or souvenirs from Buzzard Sunday. We’d like to make a display of the long history of Buzzard Day.

We are also asking Hinckley residents and area civic organizations to help host the thousands of people who visit us on Buzzard Sunday, now in it’s 60th year. It’s just two hours of service (or more, if you like) and many more hours of fun. Students who need community service credits, here’s your chance! The sooner you sign up, the more options you have.

Show Your Support with a Sponsorship

This year, area businesses, organizations and individuals are encouraged to contribute to Buzzard Day to help increase scholarship funding, because we are aware of the rising cost of post-secondary education. The Hinckley Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit, so contributions are both generous and tax-deductible.

Sponsors will be recognized in advertising, social media and promotional materials posted and handed out on Buzzard Sunday. For details and levels of sponsorship, please download the application.
