Padanaram Village in Dartmouth is hosting their annual Christmas Festival on Friday, December 8th, from 5 to 8 pm. Santa and elves will arrive at 6 pm!

At the corner of Elm and Bridge Street, you will find live entertainment from Dancer's Edge, carolers, a DJ, and The Marmonics. You can also find delicious food from Valley Top Tavern, Farm & Coast Market, the Boy Scouts, and The Black Bass. Giveaways from Santa are proudly sponsored by Bay Coast Bank.

Walk around the village as it transforms into Christmas Town for a few hours. Each shop offering something for the occasion. Meet the Grinch from 6-7 pm at Anne Whiting Real Estate, or enjoy a stuffed quahog at the Sail Loft. Don't forget to send Santa a letter and create your very own Christmas ornament at Santa's Workshop located in South Wharf!

All this and so much more for your family to get in the Christmas spirit! Parking will be available at New Bedford Yacht Club, with shuttle service from St. Mary's Church as well.
