Saturday, December 1st, the village of Center Sandwich will be alive with good cheer and the holiday spirit. The Sandwich Central School, the Doris Benz Center, and the Sandwich Historical Society will have more than 40 crafters from Sandwich and beyond with handmade goods and goodies; these locations will be open from 9-4 Saturday.
For over 40 years, the first full December weekend in Sandwich has been a celebration of craftsmanship. This year is no exception. Many artisans, farmers, bakers, craftspeople, individuals, businesses, and organizations are each doing something in the spirit of community and the holidays.
The weekend will feature a tree-lighting, live entertainment, food, local hand-made gifts, fund-raisers for youth, live animals, and so much more. Combined efforts will mean a weekend of fun and festivities for all who come to enjoy. Each day more is being planned. Maps and events listings will be available around town and information (and photos) can be found on Facebook at Christmas in the Village–Sandwich, NH and right here.
There will be a Farmer's Market at the Mount Israel Grange, lunch with Santa at the Corner House, and lots of workshops, artist studios, galleries, and more open. The Community Church of Sandwich will have the annual Ladies Aid Chowder Luncheon and craft tables in the Methodist Meetinghouse; and there will be wreath making in the Baptist Meetinghouse. The Sandwich Business Group is sponsoring a horse-drawn wagon ride throughout the village which will take folks from location to location.
The Sandwich Home Industries and a group of juried craftspeople, The Arts Center at 12 Main Street (Home of Advice To The Players), Willow Pond Antiques and Goods, Surroundings Gallery, Tappan Chairs, Will Lehman Custom Framing, The Village Green Cafe and Market, Soft Touch Farm, Kindred Spirits Farm, as well as other locations, will be open Saturday, December 1, and Sunday, December 2.
