About Us


Celebrating winter, community, festivities, holidays, sharing and the gatherings of friends.

We cherish the sights, sounds and scents of the seasons and times past. Join us in feeling the magic of this time of year. Stroll among glimmering tree lights under winter sky, enjoy holiday decorations, listen to the music, hear the clip-clop of horse hooves on cobble stone, the echo of train whistles, smell the boughs of fir and wood smoke in chilly air. Take a break, step back, let time and the season catch-up with you in our village.

We’re the Fairhaven Winterfest committee of the Historic Fairhaven association. Share our enthusiasm for Fairhaven and its beautiful setting between mountains and bay. A place to visit our businesses, enjoy shopping, entertainment, eating, drinking and all we have to offer.
