Barnstead Festival of Trees


Pictures with Santa at the Barnstead Festival of Trees this weekend!


The Barnstead Festival of Trees is still looking for more businesses  and citizens to sponsor a tree for $50.00, you decorate it however you like for a chance to win people’s choice. If you do not want to decorate your tree, the Festival Committee will find someone to do it for you for a little extra money. Trees are then voted on by the public and you get your tree, fully decorated! Or if you prefer, you may donate your tree and the Barnstead, Laconia and other area Police Departments will bring it to a family that might otherwise not have a Christmas tree this year.


The Festival all takes place this weekend; November 20, 4-8 PM and November 21, 1-8 PM. Admission is $5.00 per person or $20.00 for a family, children under 6 free. The trees are brought from a conservation farm in Bethlehem, NH and the goal is to have 50 trees set up. (As of this printing there were 23 ready to be decorated but more than half still need sponsors) Besides voting for your favorite tree there will be Pictures with Santa (Saturday), wagon rides, cocoa, cider, Prospect Mountain Chorus (Friday), a bonfire with marshmallows for toasting, arts and crafts (Saturday) and opportunities to donate hats, mittens, scarves, boots and coats at “The Giving Tree.”  Pictures of the winning tree will be posted on Facebook and here in The Suncook Valley Sun.


All proceeds go to a very worthy cause; the Greater Lakes Child Advocacy Center and the children and families of Belknap county. For those who do not know what the advocacy center does, the best way to explain it is in the sentence “They make it so no child has to tell their terrible story more than once.” Highly skilled law enforcement and trained individuals are part of what makes the Advocacy Center a caring environment for those children who have been victimized and need to have their words documented so that their cases can go to trial effectively. The child tells one interviewer who in turn records the interview, it is then transcribed then submitted for further use in the court system, making it so the child does not have to retell their story over and over again.


For more information you can contact sponsor, Sticks and Stones Farm at 776-8989 or
