Hawley Winterfest Horse and Carriage

Mark your calendar now and don’t miss Hawley Winterfest on December 9-11, 2022. Travel back into simpler holiday times and kick off your winter season with the Winterfest Parade through town and visit with Santa in the historic Bingham Park Bandstand after the parade. Many businesses will host open houses with yummy baked goods and hot drinks. Stroll through town and visit with the store owners, shop the holiday bargains, have the kids make a craft and get your gift list completed by supporting our unique small businesses. Lots of planning is still underway, follow us online for details.

Gingerbread will be in the air during Hawley Winterfest as there will be gingerbread house building and gingerbread people decorating at several different venues. There will be live theater at The Ritz Playhouse, live music at many local churches, a live nativity play, many craft vendors, ugly sweater contest, Trees for a Cause, holiday decorating contest, holiday lights, Beer Tour, Christmas Tree Express train rides, and so much more!

The Arcadia Chorale group, led by Hawley native, Matthew Rupcich, will be performing at the Hawley United Methodist Church on the evening of Friday, December 9th at 7:30pm. The Arcadia Chorale is one of the Northeast PA’s premier performing groups, founded in 1978; their angelic voices will surely help you into the holiday spirit! Ticket available for purchase here.

Trees for a Cause will return in 2022 after a successful debut in 2021; local non-profit agencies decorate a tree, and we invite everyone to vote for their favorite and the agency with the most votes will receive a bonus donation from the DHP. Look for the entry forms here!
