The Beacon Hose Firemen’s Carnival is one of Beacon Falls’ most anticipated annual events, taking place each year in early June. From Thursday to Saturday, thousands of townspeople and visitors from afar join us for a weekend of great fun, food, music and more. We also host a parade Saturday at 6 p.m., when dozens of departments bring their members and apparatuses to march down Main Street.
The 2015 carnival will be held June 11-13. In addition to Marenna Amusements’ rides, our signature Beacon Hose food, and a number of raffles, we also have a great lineup of entertainment set for each night. It includes Thursday Night Trivia, live music Friday night with Sudden Impact, and live music Saturday night with Swell Daze. Click here to read more about the lineup.
Departments interested in joining us for our parade on June 13 can click here to find out more information and fill out an RSVP form.
Pre-sale tickets are also currently available — click here to order your carnival tickets. Tickets purchased online can be picked up in a separate line at the carnival so you don’t have to stand in a long line when you arrive. Click here to see our food and drink menu for this year.
We’re also happy to announce that we’ll be running a raffle with 10 prizes for this year’s carnival. Tickets cost $2 each and can be purchased at the firehouse office during regular hours (Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.) or at the carnival. Here’s the prize list:
1st prize: $400 gift certificate to The Home Depot
2nd prize: $200 gift certificate to Stop and Shop
3rd prize: $200 gift certificate to Big Y
4th prize: $150 gift certificate to Beacon Falls Pharmacy

The drawing will be held at Beacon Hose on Saturday, June 13, at 9:30 p.m. — a few hours after our parade ends.
Beacon Hose was thrilled with the support in 2014, when the department raised thousands of dollars — all of which is put back into the department to improve its quality and award scholarships to Beacon Falls students.
We hope to see you next weekend!
