Fairs & Festivals in Berkshires and Pioneer Valley/Mohawk Trail

December 4–6, 2015

The town of Stockbridge, made famous by Norman Rockwell’s painting of the village during the holidays, becomes a magical New England. The holiday celebration offers a full range of activities, with highlights including holiday readings, house tours, caroling, and a holiday concert. See detailed schedule.
Capping off the weekend is a re-creation on Sunday of the scene depicted in Main Street at Christmas, complete with vintage automobiles parked in the spots occupied in the painting. The day’s activities include horse drawn rides, a visit from Santa, Roger the Jester, and much more.
