The Easton Lions are excited to bring home some of the best local artisans to the Oakes Ames Memorial Hall during our annual Holiday Festival.  This is a juried art show, so you can be sure to find quality crafts and artwork.

This is a great time to find that special gift for the coming holidays in December.  Come visit our heated hall with two full floors on Saturday and one floor on Sunday.  Our artisans will have that special something you've been looking for.  With many  one-of-a-kind items not found elsewhere in cookie-cutter stores.

The arts and crafts fair is in North Easton's historic Oakes Ames Memorial Hall.  Anyone interested in renting a space for the fair can learn more by downloading the Crafter's Application & Contract using the button above, the application also includes a layout of the two floors in Oakes Ames Memorial Hall.

Questions about the show should be directed to Lion Jon Morgan at joncmorgan@comcast.net or 508-982-0990.

We're looking forward to another wonderful show!

Festival Planning and History

Holiday Festival planning is happening NOW!  We hope to build on the success of last year with the dance and The Farmer's Daughter  special event on Saturday in North Easton Village.  We are looking for ideas on how to make our annual event better, engaging with businesses in the historic district and making it more fun for all the folks and families in Easton.

The Easton Lion’s Annual Holiday Festival will be held (rain or shine or snow) Saturday-10 am to 6 pm, and Sunday 12 pm-5 pm.  

Festival Chairman Jon Morgan says "this year's events will be bigger and better than ever!"  We're looking for some new rides & games, more detail to come and the trackless train ride will offer free rides, sponsored by Creative World Children's Learning Center of Easton.

As always, the activities begin with an Arts and Craft Show at Oakes Ames Memorial Hall (3 Barrows Street Easton) on both days.  Two entire floors of arts and crafts will be on display Saturday. Great shopping or browsing offered for an incredible array of gifts.  The Hall is heated!

Outside there will be bouncy houses/moonwalks, a FREE trackless train ride sponsored by Creative World; hay wagon rides; musical entertainment.  An assortment of food including hot dogs, hamburgers, fried dough, chili, french fries and popcorn cooked by the Lovable Lions and sold for reasonable prices.  Buy tickets at the ticket booth for all rides and food.
