The Log Cabin in the Park will be the hub of activity over the five-day event.

The shops on Main Street will be hosting various special events and activities along with one-of-a-kind holiday gift ideas. All shops are locally owned and different. Hand-blown glass items, Amish made rugs, flowers, vintage furniture and unique, one-of-a-kind gifts are just a few of the many things waiting to be discovered in Burton Village year round.
Picturesque and historic Burton Village is a wonderful place to visit in any season. The holiday time brings out the very New England feel of the town and area. Just a peaceful walk through the Village Green relaxes and refreshes. For those who wish to extend their visit, the Red Maple Inn and Goodwin House B&B are ready to welcome you. And there are three different restaurants for your dining needs.
