Since it was formed in 1997 (with its inaugural year in 1998), The Billerica Holiday Festival continues to delight people of all ages from surrounding towns during the season of enchantment and celebration. This year, celebrating its 18th Season, the Holiday Festival has transformed in to an event that is anticipated all year through.
Again this year we feature a breathtaking collection of trees, ornaments, baskets and prizes that are sure to make your holidays merry. In the spirit of “Going Green” we have converted 100% of the Billerica Common Area lighting to LED lights that require one-tenth the electricity. With OVER THREE MILES of holiday lighting adorning the Billerica Common and adjacent areas, you simply have to see it!
Get into the spirit of the season and visit the creative displays at the Billerica Public Library. Details and schedule for the Home for the Holidays Raffle and Display can be found here.
Don’t miss the Billerica Town Common Tree Lighting Ceremony where fun family activities lead up to the lighting and where Santa has even been known to stop by for a visit!
The Annual Donor Reception will be held on Friday, November 18, 2016. Attendees are given first chance to purchase tickets to this event which has established itself as the official Holiday Season Kick-off for the Billerica Holiday Festival. Visit the Holiday Reception page to purchase your tickets.
The Home for the Holidays Display and Raffle runs from November 19, 2016 through December 11, 2016 at the Billerica Public Library (Concord Road, Billerica, MA – conveniently located in the Historic Town Center of Billerica). Raffle tickets will be sold at the library. For ticket sales hours, click here.
Vote for your favorite trees, watch the common light up, have photographs taken with Santa and stroll leisurely through the downtown area. We invite you to share the sights and sounds of a New England Holiday and a tradition-in-the-making!
