The Apple Blossom Pancake Breakfast
The Apple Blossom Festival is one of Westford’s most popular annual events. Many activities are held in town that day, including a parade at 10:00 that travels through the town center. For most people, the day begins at the First Parish Pancake Breakfast. It’s an opportunity for people in town to meet family and friends for a full breakfast in very friendly surroundings. Members of the church enjoy cooking together, serving our friends and neighbors and participating in this great fundraiser. The breakfast runs from 8:00 to 11:00 and includes full pancake/sausage breakfast or muffins, coffee and juice. More info will be available in the spring!
The Strawberries ‘n Art Festival
The Strawberries ‘n Art Festival attracts arts, crafts and strawberry shortcake lovers from throughout the area. It’s held on the scenic Westford Common and offers excellent shopping, a great lunch and the best strawberry shortcake around. Volunteer at the barbeque area, enjoy selling plants at the garden table, or help with face painting. It’s lots of fun and it’s almost always a beautiful spring day.

FPCU Annual Yard Sale
The Annual Yard Sale is a tradition where everyone wins! Friends and neighbors trade in their gently used items and find treasures to take home. First Parish overflows with shoppers as they look for bargains. Clean out your closets, attics and garages and bring what you no longer need, for others to put to use. Come and share the fun as we sort through, clean & price the donations (for at least 4 hours) during the preparation week and YOU will get to come to the volunteer pre-sale on Thursday evening. Don’t miss the fun!
- Donations are Sunday, Monday, & Tuesday.
- Volunteer Presale Thursday evening
- Sale days, Friday & Saturday

The Greens Sale
Christmas is a great time of year at First Parish and one of the best occasions is the annual Greens Sale. Walk into the Fellowship Hall and the Christmas experience engulfs you. The wonderful scent of fresh greens, the beautiful bows, plants, greens and ornaments all contribute to getting you in the spirit. Volunteers can learn the art of bow making, help paint the annual wooden ornaments, or join the middle and high school youth for an evening gathering to organize the greens and eat pizza!
