JACKSON NH – Excited to be “Back at Black Mountain” for our favorite winter event… The 19th New Hampshire Sanctioned & Jackson Invitational Snow Sculpting Competition will be at Black Mountain Ski area where you can partake in skiing and riding as well as perusing the beautiful snow sculptures. This is a Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce event sponsored by Black Mountain & Nordic Village.
This incredible winter event begins on Friday January 25th at noon when teams from all over the Northeastern part of the United States will converge on Jackson Village. Sculpting continues through out the weekend and finishes at noon on Sunday the 27th. Spectators are welcome to view the entire process but to see finished pieces it is recommend you come back on Sunday the 27th. See first hand how our sculptors take 8 foot high by 4 foot round cylinder of compacted snow and create incredible art frozen in time. Sculpting pieces usually remain available for viewing for at least a week after the event giving visitors ample time to get coveted photos, however as weather is a factor we can not guarantee how long they will be standing. At night, during the event, the Sculptures are lit up giving them an entirely different perspective. We anticipate at least 12 or more teams for 2019 and a spectacular show!
JACKSON, NH – A night with Acoustic Nuisance is a unique trip through the musical minds of it’s main protagonists: multi-instrumentalist Scots born Davey Armstrong……. fellow Scot and guitar/guitar-synth Folk-Rocker Simon Crawford…. and acoustic guitar and bouzouki playing London-Irishman Kevin Dolan..all ably accented by Becky Armstrong’s fine vocals, for an entertaining blend of acoustic/electric virtuosity and vocal harmony…
Humour is ever present, as is audience participation, and alongside a varied menu of Celtic and Americana, plus their own original tunes and songs, you are likely to be confronted by guitar, tin-whistles, Irish and Scottish Pipes, bouzouki, banjo, harmonica, bass-pedals and synths – and that’s just from Davey(!) …often while singing and playing 2 or 3 at the same time…
Hailing from the British Isles but living right here in the Mount Washington Valley, the band is looking forward to another fun night in the Cold River Radio Show Mini-Series and hoping old friends (and new!) will join them at this pre-Christmas event. Come on out!
JACKSON NH – Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.
The entire Jackson Community invites you to come and see the first lighting of our all new and glimmering Christmas Holiday Tree. Jackson Village boasts one of the most beautiful evergreen trees you will see and this year the tree was very much a focal point of our Jackson Village Christmas Holiday/Winter Beautification Project. The Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce along with a committee of local businesses, residents and the Selectmen set out to enhance all the village winter decorations… and we want to show it off to you. You are personally invited to attend…
The gathering for the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is scheduled for Sunday evening November 25th, at 4:00 PM. The first 20 people to arrive will receive a candy cane and their choice of a Christmas Holiday hat. The Da Capo Singers will delight us with Christmas Caroling. Santa will do the honors of lighting the tree at exactly 4:30 PM.
Immediately following the Tree Lighting Ceremony Christmas Farm Inn & Spa has invited everyone back to their “Open House”; celebrate the beginning of the festive season with your friends and neighbors by the roaring fire in the historic Barn. Enjoy hot chocolate and home-made cookies by the Christmas Tree. Santa will be making an appearance.

JACKSON NH – Dance the night away under the stars and the Jackson Covered Bridge on Saturday August 05, 2017 starting at 7:30 PM. Featuring… Jon Sarty and the White Mountain Boys. As with all talented musicians they will have their own following as well as everyone who has been to the Covered Bridge Dance in the past, therefore we recommend you come early and pick your spot. There are a number of tables and chairs provided but they go fast. Bring your own chairs, blankets, friends, family and, of course Dancing Shoes. The Jackson Community comes together for this Old Fashioned block party once a year and you are invited.
It isn’t often you see any of New Hampshire’s Covered Bridges closed to vehicles… but on this very special night the Jackson Covered Bridge will be closed from 5 PM until midnight for this great event. You know an event is worth the trip when it stops traffic… signs will be posted and our very own Jackson Police crew will be on hand to redirect traffic as needed. If you are visiting a local business located in the loop merely continue north on route 16 and take the first right after the Covered Bridge to get into Jackson Village. Please note… all Jackson Village businesses normally opened at night will most certainly remain opened during this event. So please… mark your calendars and join us for a night of Dancing under the Stars and the Jackson Covered Bridge.
Parking for this event will be marked. The entrance fee to the Covered Bridge Dance is FREE thanks to our major sponsors: Whitney’s Inn at Jackson, Inn at Jackson, Flossie’s General Store, Homer’s Appliance and the Inn at Ellis River. Donations are always welcome.
Be sure to come hungry and enjoy a wonderfully delicious menu prepared by Apple Buns!
As this event is weather dependent please check back for a rain date.
