Celebrate, shop, and dine in Salem during the holiday season. Festival highlights include Historic Salem, Inc.'s annual Christmas in Salem Historic House Tours, Christmas at the Gables, and Santa's arrival atop the Hawthorne Hotel!
These unconventional gatherings feature cocktails and conversation, art making and music, culinary demonstrations and surprising experiences.
Also on the third Thursday of every month, the entire museum stays open from 10 am to 9:30 pm.
Salem has a number of road, bicycle, and swimming races that take place throughout the year. From the cold days of January through the warm summer and into the festive month of October, there is a race for people of all ages and abilities.
