An Entire Weekend Full of Holiday Cheer!
Artisan Craft Show
It's your favorite time of year and the annual artisan craft show suits all of your holiday shopping needs! Our museum is transformed into a local artisan, holiday themed, pop-up shop! Plenty of goods and gifts for everyone on your list.
Support the Contoocook Riverway Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization: A portion of sale proceeds benefits the operations of the museum and continued maintenance of our historic destination. Additional donations are always accepted. Please visit our Give page for more information.
Railroad Tiny Homes on Display in the Park
Roundhouse Workshop will once again have their railroad style tiny homes on display- but this time, in the Riverway Park! Tour three tow-able, reproduction 1880s style railroad cars custom-built by The Roundhouse Workshop. Walk through their Caboose Tiny House, grab a local brew in their Boxcar Pub and browse gifts in a Caboose storefront.
Polar Express Reading
Join us on the passenger coach for our traditional reading of the Polar Express! This free event will follow the annual tree lighting ceremony taking place at the gazebo.
Vintage Sleigh Display
The holiday season would be amiss without the beautifully restoring sleighs from Forever Green Farm! On display throughout the village and highlighted here at the depot will be over a dozen gorgeous sleighs to view and admire.
Each sleigh is accepted donations for the Hopkinton Food Panty. Please consider placing a non-perishable item in any of the sleighs throughout the village!
