UPDATE (8/20/2020): Unfortunately, due to the continuing circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 carnival has been canceled. We hope to bring back the event in 2021! Thanks for your support. The original post is below.
We regret to announce that the 2020 Beacon Hose Carnival, which was scheduled for June 11-13, is being indefinitely postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A number of factors went into our decision, but the top consideration was the health and safety of our community and our members. Nobody looks forward to life returning to some sense of normalcy more than us, but based on the latest guidance, our society will not yet be in a position in mid-June during which we can encourage large gatherings.
We hope to be able to reschedule the event for sometime later in the year, but only if conditions permit us to do so safely — a decision that will be made in conjunction with public health and elected officials. Be sure to follow us on social media to keep up with the latest updates.

UPDATE: We are sold out. Thanks for your support — Merry Christmas!
The annual tradition that is Beacon Hose helping our neighbors celebrate Christmas is returning once again to the firehouse with the start of our Christmas tree sales!
The sale will begin once again this year with a special Black Friday sale for those looking to get a head start on the Christmas season. We’ll continue Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 30-Dec. 1) and the three weekends after that (Dec. 7-8, Dec. 14-15, Dec. 21-22) until supplies run out. We’ll be at the firehouse each day of the sale from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. (We will close on Nov. 30 at 3 p.m. for our scavenger hunt.)
The fresh-cut trees cost $50 each, and free delivery is available to all Beacon Falls residents. We’ll also custom trim any tree to specifications — they generally run anywhere from six to eight feet tall. We will also be taking over wreath sales from the former Boy Scouts troop — details will be posted soon.
Those who would like to buy a Christmas tree without leaving their own home can also call the firehouse at 203-729-1470 during any of the sale hours.
