To say that there are numerous choices any given day or weekend is no exaggeration. Summer and fall, of course, are the most active with ethnic and music festivals, notably the Green River Festival in July, and craft fairs and fall foliage celebrations well into October and November. Several communities have monthly celebrations such as Third Thursday Turners Falls and First Fridays in Greenfield. Whatever your pleasure, you will find extraordinary experiences that celebrate the rivers, hills and valleys and towns that typify New England as you’d hoped to find it.
