Arbor Day Celebration - As part of our Arbor Day celebration, the Town offers a free tree seedling to all Clifton Park families who have had a baby born between Arbor Day 2017 (April 28) and Arbor Day 2018 (April 27). Families can register with the Office of Parks, Recreation and Community Affairs located in Town Hall. Submit a photo with the registration form and all pictures will be displayed in Town Hall the week of April 30 - May 4. Deadline for registration is April 13, 2018.
The week of April 30, parents can come to Town Hall and pick up a free seedling tree to be planted on their property as a "birth tree" for the child. The hope is that these trees will grow up with the child and add to the child's appreciation of nature and the conservation of wildlife.
Bring your family, friends, and neighbors as we mark the birth of our nation in small-town America style! Clifton Park's July Fourth Celebration culminates with great entertainment and the Capital Region's largest locally sponsored fireworks display! Live music featuring: Danny Seraphine, Bill Champlin and the California Transit Authority and The Accents!
The Town brings professional entertainers to the outdoor stage at Clifton Common every Sunday night at 7:00 p.m. during the months of July and August. On Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. during the months of July and August there is children's entertainment; such as puppet shows, magic acts, clowns or music. Although there are a few bleachers, most guests bring lawn chairs and blankets to the free concerts. The musical is held at 8:00 pm at Clifton Common.
This event, which highlights the farms and agricultural areas in the Town, is held on a weekend in September TBA from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday & Sunday. Participating farms are open for tours and offer demonstrations, entertainment, and great food.

Performed by Clifton Park's own Not So Common Players. "Thoroughly Modern Millie" tells the story of small-town girl Millie Dillmount, who comes to New York City to marry for money instead of love. A thoroughly modern aim in 1922 when women were just enering the workforce. Millie soon begins to take delight in the flapper lifestyle, but problems arise.
Recently there has been a lot of reporting in the mainstream media and discussion on social media about the inherent dangers involved in passing stop school buses. As part of our continuing “Check Your Speed” initiative in Clifton Park to raise awareness about traffic safety we felt now was a good time to remind drivers about the rules involved when a school bus stops with flashing red lights. The following is taken directly from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles Driver’s Manual.
