If "Christmas in Strafford" is new to you... it's a time when the local artisans and craftspeople of Strafford, NH (and friends) open their homes and studios to the public.  20+ locations are open (local homes, along with the Bow Lake Grange Hall and the Waldron Store).  Refreshments are served, and all manner of hand-crafted items are available for sale. 

Many of our craftsmen are juried "League of New Hampshire Craftsmen", and all our craftsmen offer high quality hand-crafted products. Click on each name (to the left & right) to view a sampling of each stop's offerings...


The map will help you get around Strafford!  Each stop is well marked on the map, with a location # and a description of their offerings.  To help you find each stop as you travel around Strafford, you will see large "Nutcracker" signs with the stop #'s well marked, letting you know you have reached your stop destination.   Maps for Christmas in Strafford are available throughout November at the Strafford Town Hall, Hill Library, Isinglass Country Store and Sheilah’s Deli.  The Map is also available in the November Strafford Community Calendar.

During the event (December 6 & 7) maps can be found at:  Isinglass Country Store, Sheilah's Deli and the Bow Lake Grange Hall (in the kitchen area).

We are in the process of making a new map for the 2014 Christmas in Strafford event. Please check back in early November 2014 for a downloadable version.
