The Magic of Winterfest and SNOW?

The 3rd week of Winterfest continues with more holiday fun! 

Friday, December 2nd – The Firehouse Arts & Events Center will be showing the family classic, ELF. Dress in your cozy best and plan for a night of laughs (and syrup!). 

Saturday welcomes Father Christmas back to the Fairhaven Village Inn along with FREE carriage rides from Noon – 3pm. The Firelight Stroll is back for the 5th year. Grab a hot cocoa or spiced cider at the entry tent and stroll the wooded path lined with luminaria. Start at 8th & Harris – near Evil Bikes. Keep the fun going at Stones Throw Brewery for an after-hours party and bonfire! Snow is in the forecast this week, so make sure to dress for holiday success!

#ShopLocal & #EatLocal all season long. Our neighbor businesses are excited to welcome you as you make holiday memories in Fairhaven!

Santa’s mailbox & the snow people will be on the Green through December 17th.

Do you love to sing???? A fan favorite, the FA LA LA CAROLING CONTEST will take place on December 17th. Gather your friends, family members, students, community choirs, glee clubs and any group who loves to sing and perform on the festive streets of Fairhaven Village.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
