Mark Twain in Fairhaven, July 31st-August 17th

When local playwright and historian Joseph Lenz wrote his “musical tall tale” Mark Twain in Fairhaven, he probably never guessed it would be 10 years before it would actually be performed in its namesake locality. For three weekends in August the Firehouse Performing Arts Center will host the play, which is loosely based on Twain's visit to Fairhaven in 1895.

  • Tickets are $12, $8 for students and seniors & are available at Village Books and at Brown Paper Tickets.
  • The Firehouse Performing Arts Center is located at 1314 Harris Avenue.

Where's Waldo? In Fairhaven of course.


Kids, parents and Waldo-lovers of all ages are invited to join us all during July for the scavenger hunt to find the elusive Waldo hidden in 25 local businesses around Fairhaven. Pick up a "Find Waldo in Fairhaven" passport at any of the businesses with a Waldo decal on the windows and get it stamped when you find the Waldo in each business. You can pick up a "Find Waldo in Fairhaven" passport at any of those locations to start your search. Click here for details on prizes.
