An unprecedented year calls for an innovative new Festival of Trees celebration from the Berkshire Museum! This year’s Festival of Trees will move from the museum’s galleries into shops, restaurants, offices, and other locations throughout Pittsfield and surrounding towns this December. The month-long community event will allow safe social distancing for families keeping their winter tradition and drive foot traffic to local businesses during the holiday season. With the support of our top-tier sponsors, all businesses, especially those that are struggling, can take part in and enjoy the benefits of this community celebration free of charge.
Local businesses are invited to join in this community celebration by committing to decorate their storefront, windows, or business lobby on the theme Legends of the Berkshires. If you do not have a storefront but would like to participate, please email [email protected] for options to join in the fun.
The event will run Saturday, November 28, 2020 through Sunday, January 10, 2020.
To be included at the start of the festival, please register by no later than Tuesday, November 24.
About the Theme:
Festival of Trees: Legends of the Berkshires invites the community to explore tales from the place we call home. Dive into the history of the first recorded baseball game, learn about the famous figures who grew up on your street, and investigate rumors of mysterious sightings in our hills with a collection of bright and colorful winter displays spread across Pittsfield and the surrounding community. Wherever your journey takes you, the stories that unfold in the Berkshires are legendary!
