ABOUT

We’re celebrating our 10th year with an expanded schedule!

In addition to our flagship
Saturday Beer Fest,
which features over 150 drafts from over 50 international and domestic craft breweries, we welcome the return of last year’s
Friday Farm-to-Table Food & Wine Extravaganza
& the launch of our
Sunday Arts Afternoon.

 

With these events, we not only bring some of the best of the region to one location to be enjoyed in the beautiful Berkshire landscape, but we also raise important funds to support area non-profits.

 

So mark you calendars,
