The Beacon Hose Firemen’s Carnival is one of Beacon Falls’ most anticipated annual events. An estimated 8,000 townspeople and visitors from afar join us for a weekend of great fun, food, music and more.

2023 EVENT: After two years of hosting our carnival in October, we’re ready to bring back Beacon Falls’ biggest party to the summer. The 2023 carnival is set for June 29-July 1. We’ll have plenty of fun and great food — join us! More info will be posted soon.

RAFFLE: One person will win $10,000 in cash, and 24 others will also win cash prizes! Raffle tickets will soon be on sale for $20 each. They will be available at the firehouse, through Beacon Hose members, at select local businesses, and online.

DONATIONS: We are always thrilled with the turnout at our carnival, but we also seek sponsorships and donations to offset the substantial costs of hosting the event. Businesses seeking to sponsor the carnival can click here for more information and to donate. Beacon Falls residents and friends of Beacon Hose who would like to donate can click here.

PARADE: All fire departments and other organizations are invited to participate on our parade, which is set for Saturday, July 1 at 5 p.m. Click here for more information and to RSVP.

BENEFICIARIES: During the carnival, Beacon Hose raises thousands of dollars — all of which is put back into the community with fire prevention programs, youth sports teams, local youth organizations, community events, scholarships for Beacon Falls students, holiday programs, aid for less fortunate families, perks for our volunteers, and even some wish-list emergency equipment.
