Winchendon Fall Festival October 22, 2022 from 9am to 4pm in Downtown Winchendon

From the Town of Winchendon website: “The event may look a bit different this year because the Central Street Reconstruction project that includes a newly paved street, all new sidewalks, new curbing and ADA curb ramps, new crosswalks, LED street lights, and a bus shelter will begin in early spring. To accomodate the construction season, Fallfest has been scheduled 2 weeks later than in past years in hopes that the project will be complete for everyone to enjoy during the Festival! “
