Dearborn Brewing Supports Goodfellows!

During the month of December 2017, Dearborn Brewing picked Goodfellows as their Feel Good Tap of the month!

For the month of December, Dearborn Brewing will donate $1 from every pint sold of their Falling Walnut Brown brew!

When shopping is tiresome and the roads are less than desirable on which to drive, go treat yourself to some rest, good company, and a delicious brew all while supporting your favorite charity!

No Child Without A Christmas!

Dearborn Homecoming!


Sticking to tradition, Dearborn Goodfellows will have a beer booth this year!


We are the only beer booth selling craft beer at Homecoming!  While others are sipping on an average beer with average bartenders, you could be sipping on superior beer with superiorly entertaining bartenders (at least we think so)! While average is perfectly acceptable before and after the first weekend in August, an experience at Dearborn’s Homecoming should be anything but average! Come support the children of Dearborn with some great tasting beer to quench your thirst.  All tips and proceeds go towards the children. Who said you cannot have fun whilst supporting the youth?

You can find our booth next to the Polish tent at the end of Monroe St. inside the festival.

What we are selling:

Live Wire IPA

Magic Hat 9

Shock Top Shandy

Labatt Blue

Bud Light

Seagram’s Wine Coolers (select)

93 Year Retrospective

Over the past 93 years many things have changed in Dearborn. Businesses have come and gone, the political landscape has changed and neighborhoods have developed and re-developed.

The Rotunda opened to thunderous applause and disappeared in a fiery flash before generations could experience her as a World’s Fair Exhibit and not a softball field.

Tractors migrated west and established roots as Pioneers and Thunderbirds. School districts were re-defined and rivalries were re-born with the passing of each generation.
Greenfield Village became The Henry Ford, Crowley’s turned into Kroger, and Ford Land transformed much of Dearborn’s unused space into new business opportunities.

If the preceding paragraphs have you playing the “You know you’re old if you remember…game,” then consider this – the one constant has been the need for the Dearborn Goodfellows to fulfill the mission of “No Child Without a Christmas.”

Each spring dedicated Goodfellows meet to plan the path for the coming year. Fundraising decisions are made, committees are formed, and budgets are established. In years past the Goodfellows held pancake breakfasts in the roller skating rink of the Civic Center, and today the Smoke on the Grill wraps up the summer season.

The start of the school season represents back to school shopping for parents, and it kicks off the Goodfellow Christmas shopping spree. We make our lists and check them twice. We purchase and package age appropriate gifts, and we organize an army of volunteers to deliver the packages.
The pictures on this page serve as a remembrance and reflection of Goodfellows past and present. Please enjoy this walk though time.

…. Pictures to follow shortly
