A Berkshire winter tradition.

The Stationery Factory

63 Flansburg Ave

Dalton MA

Entrance fee: $2.00

All proceeds support Roots Rising's mission to empower youth and build community through food and farming.

Enjoy live music, delicious food and children's crafts.

Find unique gifts and keep holiday spending in our community!

We believe in supporting the Berkshires' local economy. Buying local is a social and economic investment in the people and places where we live. And it makes for a vibrant and thriving community.


The Handmade Holiday Festival enables us to promote local artisans, farmers, and food producers while also raising money to support Roots Rising's work.

From pottery and jewelry to gourmet food items and body care products, the Handmade Holiday Festival is a one-stop holiday shopping destination.


Shoppers can enjoy locally roasted coffee and delicious prepared food to keep them feeling festive and fueled. And a special children's craft-making zone runs throughout the weekend where every budding artisan can leave with a homemade gift. 

The Stationery Factory, now a century old, is a 110,000 square foot brick complex that was formerly a Crane & Co. stationery mill. Parking is free and the building is handicap accessible. 


We look forward to seeing you there! And check out our Facebook event page here!
