17th Annual Winter Holiday Stroll




Since 1993, the Stroll has served as Nashua's official kick-off to the holiday season. Each year, close to 30,000 people from across New England visit downtown Nashua to enjoy this holiday event. The evening kicks off with a candlelit walk of thousands down to Railroad Square where the city's official Christmas tree is lit. Much of the downtown is closed to traffic for the evening, allowing strollers to wander to different artistic and cultural performances, sample offerings from street vendors, dine in downtown's fine restaurants and do holiday shopping at our unique specialty shops and boutiques.

In keeping with the holiday spirit, the Winter Holiday Stroll also features a collection at in front of Citizens Bank where strollers can drop off items such as canned goods, disposable diapers and new, unwrapped toys for local charitable organizations.

There are two additions to the 2010 event. The beer garden is back, and this year it will feature more than just beer - with a full schedule of live music, more beverage options and other activities, it's going to be an entertainment hub. All ages can attend, but those who are 21+ and wish to order alcohol will require a wrist band.

There will also be a silent auction fundraiser where you can bid on prize packages with great items such as Chunky's Cinema & Pub movie passes, Pat's Peak ski passes, gift certificates to downtown shops and restaurants, hotel stays and more.
