FOR WEB- POSTER copyAbout the Festival

For generations the Harvest Festival has been a cherished tradition in the Berkshires. It is one of the largest and longest running events of its kind in the country with up to 10,000 attendees. Proceeds from the event support educational programs at the Garden.

The Festival is a family-friendly celebration of community, showcasing local crafters & artists, non-stop entertainment, artisan food producers and food trucks. It also features a silent auction, giant tag sales of all kinds, a farmers market, educational workshops and zillions of kids activities, including a haunted house.  And don’t forget to check our new Botanical Garden section with the Garden’s own Farm Camp, Hall of Pumpkins and much more.

Become a Festival Volunteer. Visit the volunteer page for available job descriptions and to learn how you can help. To volunteer, contact the Office: 413 298 3926.
