 THE KINDNESS FESTIVAL May 17, 18, and 19, 2013

First offered in the Mount Washington Valley in 2011, this encore intends to capture all the exuberance and enthusiasm of the original and introduce several new presentations adding more alternatives and inspirations. A Feel Good Festival... Laced with Random Acts of Kindness! Read on for further information about the Festival or click below for Notchland Package descriptions.

Select a Notchland Be Kind Lodging Package: Each Day Better & Better Package for 2 nights Change for the Good Package for 3 nights

The Festival will feature multiple dynamic speakers, a large outdoor concert, a candlelit labyrinth, children's art & music, a main tent full of community services, a hospice butterfly release, a penny sale, and of course hundreds of people will come out to commit thousands of random acts of kindness throughout the Mount Washington Valley. Visit for more details as they are scheduled.

This year's Kindness Festival is a fund-raiser for Visiting Nurse, Home Care & Hospice and Evergreen Institute for Wellness. It is also a community service to valley residents, students of all ages, and visitors alike. When our original version debuted in 2011 it was recognized to have a dramatic positive influence on many of our youth through student outreach; on the hundreds of participants; and helped in branding the community as a positive place to live and vacation. The inclusion of this new fund-raising component for these two Kinds of organizations is a natural evolution of the Festival spirit.

Start by being Kind to Yourself... come stay at Notchland. Experience the quiet time in the mountains. We're pleased to offer multi-night packages, introducing you to the magic of The Kindness Festival... and for the previously initiated, this is a chance to revel in kindness for kindness sake!

There is a $45 fee, and you will each need positive proof of identity, plus a copy of any divorce papers, or death certificate, if either of you have been married before. (If you live in NH, the State prefers, but doesn’t require, that you get your license in your hometown.

Your wedding ceremony can be on the same or the next day but must be within the 90 day period.

  • Lodging in a Deluxe Room

  • Approximately 24 photos taken by a Notchland staffer
