Join us as we kick off the holiday season at the annual SoWa Winter Festival. Housed in the iconic SoWa Power Station, the SoWa Winter Festival is the biggest winter shopping village in Boston. Featuring over 100 of the region's best makers and specialty food vendors, you'll find the perfect handmade gifts for everyone on your list. While you shop, sip on winter spirits by Banyan Bar + Refuge - proceeds support our neighbors at the Haley House. Xmas trees will be available for purchase from Stow Greenhouses.

On Thayer Street (450 Harrison Ave), the winter wonderland continues in a heated tent featuring live holiday music, a flower crown station with Alice's Table, mulled wine, hot chocolate, and raclette cheese specialties by Gaslight. Right outside, enjoy food trucks, live ice sculpting from noon - 2:30 pm, as well as the galleries, artist studios, and shops that call SoWa home year 'round.
