Rated as the number one Holiday Craft Fair in Massachusetts by Yankee Magazine!
Live performances will create a festive beat to the fair with music for all, including fiddle and bass duo, Annika
Amstutz and Daniel Plane; Jazz pianist Stephen Page, and Bella Voce Duo, with pianist, Michael Rheault. Also
there will be Matt Rogers of No Words Required on chapman stick and John Tercyak on guitar and vocals.
All weekend, children can explore the quintessential western Massachusetts miniature village, circa 1897,
preparing for their country holiday celebrations. Located to the left of the end of the red carpet at the fair, the
village includes a school house, general store, church, bank, book shop, and much more. Crafted by Beverly
Kidder in one inch to the foot scale, these carefully made, fully lit displays capture a moment in time, tell a story,
and convey our holiday traditions. Children 12 and under may choose a free miniature gift at the display
table. On Sunday, families can come and enjoy free crafting activities!
