Warner Fall Foliage Festival!

Welcome to the Warner Fall Foliage Festival!
The festival starts in 3 days!
Since 1947, the people of Warner have come together at the height of autumn color to host the Warner Fall Foliage Festival and to welcome old and new friends to our community. The Festival is Warner's invitation to share the natural splendor of New Hampshire's vibrant autumn colors while enjoying food, entertainment, carnival rides and fine crafts along the main streets of Warner.
The Festival is organized and by hundreds of local volunteers. During the festival, good folks from walks of life volunteer to cook, sell tickets, wash dishes, carry soda, flip chickens, steam lobsters and become 'refuse collection specialists,' all to money for community projects.
We welcome you to our small central New Hampshire town to experience autumn's splendor and share in our community spirit.
