Upcoming Events

Saturday, August 26th, 2017, 11:00 AM - 11:00 PM
Charlemont Fairgrounds Charlemont, MA.

Join us for New England's best reggae festival in the heart of Western Massachusetts on the Mohawk Trail. Our festival is held at an old fairgrounds with plenty of free parking, and a giant field to dance the day away. This is a family event and all ages are welcome. Bring a picnic or purchase food from one of our many vendors. You will feel like you're in the Caribbean when you stroll by all the arts & craft vendors while listening to the best reggae in New England as your live soundtrack.

"Every year I bring all my kids and husband to this festival. The kids dance like nobody is watching and so does everyone else. The food is fantastic and I can't leave without buying great oils, and some kind or trinkets or tee shirts for all my kids. If I can't find my husband, he is usually hovering around the amazing Caribbean food that is featured all day. We do bring some of our own stuff to snack on, but once you smell the food cooking, it's time to eat. Love this event." -Julie Miller, Manager

Franklin County Chamber of Commerce

Franklin County CiderDaysWe had so much fun at last year's CiderDays that we're doing it again on (as tradition would have it) the first full weekend of November 2017.

The Committee is hard at work on the program and events for this year's festival and that information will be available soon. In the meantime, you can download last year's schedule or watch our new video (thanks, TOLD Video!) to see what makes CiderDays a can't miss event.

What is CiderDays?

CiderDays is an annual community celebration of all things apple in beautiful Franklin County, Massachusetts. 2017 marks our 23rd year with tours, cidermaking and tastings, workshops and much more in orchards and venues county-wide from Ashfield, Deerfield, Charlemont and Colrain to New Salem and the towns in between. Whether you are a cider aficionado (hard or sweet), make your own cider, are an orchardist, like hanging out in bucolic orchards, or just enjoy soaking up all the goodness of autumn in New England, CiderDays is your event!

There is a charge for some of the events but many of the workshops and activities at the Shelburne Buckland Community Center and at local orchards are completely FREE.
