The Boston Christmas Festival took place over 3 days (November 7th-9th 2014) and I went on Saturday November 8th.
It was in the World Trade Center area and was a quick walk from the WTC T-stop (Silverline). It was on my old route to work and I had to really pay attention not to miss the WTC stop.
In my mind, there were 3 areas: arts and craft vendors, specialty food vendors, and the gingerbread competition. It opened at 10am and I arrived at 10:05. There was a line to get tickets, but lucky I had gotten my tickets earlier and walked right in. Once in the exhibition area, I started with the arts and craft section.
There was 1 (or 2, I can’t remember because it got so packed) aisles with booths selling baked goods, dip mixes, BBQ sauce, hot sauce, nuts, and olive oil.
The gingerbread competition was neat. Different restaurants/bakeries made them and other businesses “bought them” as a fundraiser for a non-profit organization called Housing Families. They were also judged and had different categories.
It was fun! It got packed, on Saturday morning, so I’d suggest to go at a different time next year!
