Berlin Fair - Annually in September
Since 1949, The Berlin Lions Club has operated the Berlin Fair and it has been the main event in town ever since. Each year brings new and exciting things to the Berlin Fair, including the opening of our stand filled with seasonal wreaths and arrangements created by our members. Proceeds from the sales support our scholarship and community projects.
May Plant Sale - Biennial
Our members work tirelessly to provide high-quality plants from our home gardens for the sale. Held under the VFW picnic roof, everyone joins together to make this event the success that it has always been. We appreciate the support from the townspeople as well as out-of-towners who enjoy gardening as much as we do. Events such as these not only bring our members together, but also fellow gardeners from the area so that everyone walks away with a treasured experience or plant.
Christmas Boutique - Biennial in November
Our members organize this holiday fundraising event approximately every other year. It brings together members of the Berlin community and surrounding towns. The members hand-craft a sparkling array of arrangements, wreaths, fireplace garlands, hospitality gifts and home-baked goods, just to name a few. We also hold a White Elephant Sale at this event. This is generally held at the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library on Kensington Road.
