The Festival is an annual event on the Wakefield Commons, along the shoreline of picturesque Lake Quannapowitt.

Craft vendors, local organizations, live entertainment, great food and a fun children's area comprise the day. Children will also enjoy the special activities at the Festival: face-painting, games, and rides.

The Festival is organized by the WCNA as a fundraiser for its many community projects. All proceeds are used for town improvement projects and community events.

Arts & Crafts
The biggest attraction at the Festival is the sea of tents under which you will find only the best arts and crafts. Every vendor goes through our jurying process to ensure a consistent quality and variety of products. We insist that everything be handmade by the artisans themselves. You will not find imports at our show. You will find one-of-a-kind creations of both esthetic and practical value.

Regular participants include Friends of Beebe Library, who offer a very popular book “sale”, accepting donations for great books. (Get there early!) There are also fun and informative displays by environmental groups, health organizations, and other local civic groups.

Children’s Activities
While it is a treat just being in the beautiful park right next to the super play-ground (another WCNA project), children will also enjoy the special activities at the Festival: face-painting, games, and rides.

Your kids might also be inspired by the street art created on-the-spot by the Wakefield High School Art Department.

Our own members happily take orders at the main food tent. We offer a satisfying fare, including burgers, healthy wraps, salads, watermelon, and dessert. Pricing is friendly too – a full meal is less than $5.

In addition, we also add select food vendors to round out your choices, including “the sausage guy”, a lemonade stand, fried dough, etc.
