'Tis the season — for holiday craft fairs and bazaars; tree lightings and festivals of trees; carol singing; hot cocoa and cider; visits with Santa; sleigh rides and cookie tours ...

Whether it’s due to the pent-up demand for joy and camaraderie due to the pandemic hardships of the past few years or simply the valley’s penchant for spreading good cheer — for whatever reason, the Mount Washington Valley is bursting with holiday events this season. So, presented below is a chronological listing of some, but certainly not all, things holly-jolly in our neck of the woods happening over the next month or so. The list will be updated and appear each Saturday through New Year’s in The Conway Daily Sun. Happy holidays!
