Sandwich is a wonderful place to visit and, for those of us who are really lucky, a special place to live. This year, more so than ever, we are proud to live here because we are celebrating 375 years of history in our village. The celebration began with First Night and will continue with monthly events throughout 2014.

April is the month for celebrating spring and the appearance of daffodils throughout the village and along scenic Route 6A and all of the back roads and trails. Everywhere you look you see their little yellow faces reaching for the warmth of the sun.

The gate opens at 10:00 am and the festivities will run until 4:00 pm. There will be musical performances, artists tents displaying work by local artists featuring painters, potters, stained glass artists, photographers, folk artists, and jewelers. Stunning gardening and floral displays and presentations and musical performances will run throughout the day. The New England Food Truck Association will offer a variety of breakfast and lunch foods for adults and children.

The festival features a Kids Zone with crafts, face painting, and special performances just for the
kiddies. There will be craft sessions for kids ages 2 through 5 and sessions for kids ages 6 and above.

A complete schedule of events and a listing of musical performers and food vendors is available on the 375th Anniversary website and admission to the festival is free.

We residents are feeling quite proud to celebrate the 375th year of this amazing village and are eager to share the celebration with visitors. We hope you will log on to the website and read about all of the incredible events that are scheduled throughout the season and come join the celebration of Sandwich and share the excitement with us. There are rooms at the Inn and we would love to have you.
