Truro Treasures began in 1992 when several community members, most notably Betty Groom and Boo Houstoun, envisioned a fall weekend for children and adults to raise money to help save the Highland Lighthouse, and to promote community pride and interest in Truro. As a result, a non-profit organization,Truro Treasures, was created to sponsor the event. Since then, Truro Treasures has evolved and expanded into an annual fall weekend event that is crammed full of activities.The Mission of Truro Treasures is to sponsor a weekend of fun for the entire town of Truro that builds community spirit. Many events are free, and when funds are raised, they are given back to various local non-profit organizations. Click here for a list of 2014 recipients.
This year's theme, celebrating the 24th anniversary of Truro Treasures, is "Truro's Bounties”. The weekend begins on Friday with a talk at the Highland House Museum, and an evening cocktail party hosted by The Whitman House. Among the many activities over the next two days are: a pancake breakfast, arts & crafts show, flea market, kids events, silent art auction, 5k run/walk, golf tournament, Highland Center tour, Truro Police Department Tour and K-9 demonstration, antique and classic car show, adult treasure hunt, continuous raffle drawings featuring many gift certificates and prizes, our closing event, the grape stomp and jazz festival. Check the 2015 Schedule of Events page for details on all weekend activities.
