The Trustees of Reservations (The Trustees) would like to announce a celebratory New Year’s bonfire on Sunday, January 9, 2022 from 5PM – 8PM.

Help us ring in the New Year with a celebratory winter bonfire! Gather with your friends to warm your hands by the fire, sip a hot drink or a cold beer from Stellwagen, and enjoy delicious food from the Mom on the Go and Cruisin’ Cabby Shack food trucks.

This event is open to all and is intended as a festive way for the community to celebrate safely together. If you have resolved to get outside more this year, this is a great way to start off on that resolution by celebrating under the stars, enjoying a meal by the fire, and spending time enjoying life with family and friends. Please dress warmly as this event is
entirely outdoors.

Consider giving your tree a useful purpose on the farm! Community members can drop their Christmas trees off at Weir River Farm between January 3 and January 8.  Trees should be piled at the rear of the parking lot across from 140 Turkey Hill Lane.  The trees will be used for the bonfire and the ash will be used as a soil supplement in our community gardens.

Tickets are $9/adult $6/child for Trustees members and $15/adult $10/child for non-members and can be purchased online at or at the event. A rain/snow date is scheduled for Saturday, January 15 from 5PM-8PM. Ticket-holders will be notified by email if the event is rescheduled.

Although we love dogs, Weir River is a working farm, so please leave your furry friends at home.
