About the Festival

Since 1947, the people of Warner have hosted the Warner Fall Foliage Festival to welcome old and new friends to our community. After a two year absence, the Festival is back and the Board is committed to a full Festival as we all remember. With hundreds of local volunteers helping to put the event on and raise money for community organizations, the Festival has donated thousands of dollars to these organizations to support the growth and enrichment of local culture, music, art, sports, town and school projects, parks and facilities. Please join us on Main Street to celebrate the return of the Festival.
