Welcome to Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts!

Moonlight Magic 2016 is the place to find information about the hilltowns of West Franklin County, Massachusetts, including the iconic village of Shelburne Falls.

In addition to the Village of Shelburne Falls, you'll find information on this site about all our towns, including Ashfield, Buckland, Charlemont, Colrain, Conway, Hawley, Heath, Plainfield, Rowe, and Shelburne, all lining the Mohawk Trail (Route 2) along the Deerfield River in Western Massachusetts.

The region boasts gorgeous scenery in every season; world-class recreational pursuits; and a bounty of farms offering fresh fruits and vegetables, maple syrup, and the best cider in the country.

You’ll also find artist-run galleries, bookstores, music, and theater alongside excellent restaurants, unique shops, and comfortable lodging.

The Village of Shelburne Falls features the world famous Bridge of Flowers, the ancient Glacial Potholes, and "movie stars" identifying the film locations for Labor Day and The Judge.
