The Season of Winterfest Kicks off in Fairhaven!

Several weeks of holiday activities begins this week with the first of our Winterfest Events! On Friday, November 18th, The Fairhaven Association will host both the Winter Art Walk and the Winterfest Kick Off and Silent Auction! 

Make the “HUB” located at 1106 Harris Street your first stop; pick up an Art Walk map, bid on 20+ silent auction items provided by local merchants and make sure to bring your camera – a whimsical holiday backdrop will be set up for all to enjoy. The silent auction begins at 4pm and closes at 7pm, the Art Walk with 18 “stops” will take place from 4:30pm – 7:30pm.

Week 2 brings us the traditional events we all love!

November 26th will be a full day on the Fairhaven Village Green. The Winter Market will host 19 vendors + a few of our neighbors starting at noon. Entertainment will take place throughout the day culminating with the lighting of the Village Tree at 5pm. Father Christmas makes his first of 4 Saturday appearances from Noon – 3pm and FREE carriage rides will be offered too. Make sure the kiddos drop off their letters to Santa – the mailbox will be on the Green from Nov. 26 – Dec 17th

        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.
