Every spring, thousands of children throughout Merrimack Valley start  asking their parents, “When is Clown Town?” Clown Town has been an Andover tradition for over sixty years. What began as a little fair has expanded into a two-day fun-filled event. Whether you’d like to come for an hour, or the whole day, there is something for everyone! Clown Town is Andona’s largest fundraiser of the year. Your support at Clown Town helps us to provide funds for programs for Andover's youth. We typically raise $35,000 at Clown Town. All proceeds go back to the children of our wonderful community.

How we got started

It all began In the spring of 1952 when a group of Andover women came together to form The Andona Society with the spirit of giving to varied causes in greater Andover. Since then, Andona has raised over one million dollars for Andover families.

What we do

Andona got it's name by combining "An" for Andover with "Dona" which is the latin word for give. We are a non-profit organization made up of volunteers with the purpose of raising money to support Andover youth through grants, scholarships, camperships.
