Berlin Fair (Ongoing)
Since 1949, The Berlin Lions Club has operated the Berlin Fair and it has been the main event in town ever since. This year the timeframe for the fair has moved from early October to mid-September. 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.
May Plant Sale (Ongoing)
An event held every other year, our members work tirelessly to provide plants from their own gardens for sale. Events such as these not only bring our members together, but also fellow gardeners from the area towns so that everyone walks away with a treasured experience or plant. It also promotes our club’s recognition and the good we do for the community with the dollars raised.
Christmas Boutique (Ongoing)
Our members organize this holiday fundraising event approximately every other year. It brings together members of the Berlin community and surrounding towns. Our members create and sell a sparkling array of arrangements, wreaths, fireplace garlands, hospitality gifts and baked goods, just to name a few. This is generally held at the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library.
