The holiday season in Boston starts with the annual SoWa Winter Festival held over period of two weekends in late November and early December. The largest shopping village in the city hosts over 100 creative makers offering unique handmade gifts for all ages. Visitors can also enjoy winter cocktails and a stroll through SoWa Art + Design District.

SoWa Winter Festival takes place at the iconic Power Station, an example of late-industrial glamour, that was built in 1896 being the world’s largest electric power plant at that time. You will see this unique space decorated with hundreds of lights and spreading some serious holiday spirit. Vendors are selling everything from homemade cookies to knitted hats and artsy Christmas trees.

More than 100 shops, boutiques, art studios and galleries which are located on Thayer street are also participating in the festival with special offers and promotions. Admission to the SoWa Winter Festival is free of charge for all.
