History of the Event
Brewster for the Holidays began more than 10 years ago to support and bring the community together in the name of the Christmas spirit! This event benefits a different local charity each year with the help of donations and sponsors. Look for the Brewster For the Holidays flags around town to see which local businesses are participating! In the past, various clubs, churches, and businesses have collected food items, clothes, and more to donate to local charities!
Brewster for the Holidays is filled with exciting events. There are new events each year, but there are a few staples that have become a tradition. For example, the festival kicks off each year with the traditional Illumination Ceremony. Visitors can indulge in hot cocoa and other holiday treats while listening to carolers under dazzling string lights.
Another favorite is the Gallery Stroll. During this event, you can take yourself on a tour of the town’s art galleries and antique stores. The Holiday Party concludes the weekend with treats, exhibits, and even an appearance by Santa! Other events include dances, craft shows, and a scavenger hunt for children.
