The Boston Christmas Festival is an eagerly anticipated annual event that has kicked off the holiday season in Boston for 33 years. 350 American Artisans from all over the country come to display and sell their unique products, all made by hand. For 3 days only shoppers go on a giant treasure hunt to find unique holiday gifts for their loved ones while also tucking away a goodie or two for themselves.. They are looking for wacky, contemporary, unusual, “green,” gourmet, traditional, personalized, you name it!

There is something for everyone, and in all price ranges. The array of handmade products includes stunning jewelry, seasonal decorations, photography, distinctive home accessories, children’s toys and clothes, pet specialties, gifts for the sports minded, specialty foods from over 60 pop-up boutiques and much much more.

These are items that will not be found on store shelves, but rather cater to those looking for “something more.”
