The Warner Fall Foliage Festival board has come to a decision regarding the location of the festival this coming October. We had been trying to get the festival back onto Main Street, using the Simonds Elementary School grounds. After multiple meetings and discussions, we have had ongoing challenges to smooth out so we have finally come to the decision to hold the festival on Depot Street, as we have for the past two years. We will continue the transition of moving the festival back onto the Simonds School grounds next year if possible.
Since 1947, the people of Warner have come to host the Warner Fall Foliage Festival and to welcome old and new friends to our community. The Festival is Warner’s invitation to share the natural splendor of New Hampshire’s vibrant autumn colors while enjoying the entertainment and events on Warner’s main streets.
The Festival is organized by hundreds of local volunteers. During the festival, good folks from all walks of life volunteer to cook, sell tickets, wash dishes, carry soda, flip chickens, steam lobsters and become â€˜refuse collection specialists’, all to raise money for community projects.
Welcome to our small central New Hampshire town to experience autumn’s splendor and share in our community spirit. And remember that, as always, you can enjoy the autumn splendor of New Hampshire without partisan concerns because…”Politicking at the festival is strictly prohibited by our by-laws”.
The WFFF is committed to giving back to the community, and as a part of that mission, awards grants for deserving projects in the Warner area.
Each year the festival strives to give it’s proceeds to community organizations and projects, all thanks to the hard work and commitment of the many volunteers who donate their time and energy. Warner organizations contribute hundreds of hours of volunteer time assuring the Festival’s continued success. A prerequisite of requesting funding is to be a local organization which participates actively in that year’s Festival.
