Welcome to

Conway’s Festival of the Hills!

The Conway Festival of the Hills is an annual fall festival in Conway, Massachusetts held the weekend before Columbus Day, rain or shine.  Saturday pre-festival events traditionally include a pancake breakfast, bake sale and community turkey dinner.  Sunday features a 10K road race, arts and crafts exhibits, live music, activities for kids, a parade, log-splitting and skillet-tossing contests, and food and wares from local vendors.

All proceeds from the Festival go to support scholarships for local high school students.

The Festival of the Hills committee is always looking for volunteers to help us put together this annual event.

In addition, each year the Festival provides opportunities for crafts people and artisans to showcase their work; for community members and organizations to march in the parade; and for the brave and strong to split logs and toss skillets.

Interested in volunteering your time or participating in some other way? Please get in touch with a committee member to find out more, or email festivalofthehills@yahoo.com
