Welcome to the Berkshires, "America's Premier Cultural Resort"
A Note From Richard
As artists, it is our nature to be eternal optimists. What we do is personal, and we have chosen to share our vision with whoever is interested? Amazingly, for decades, we have been able to achieve our mission uninterrupted, with another show opportunity almost weekly providing a steady year-round income for most of us.. That is until now. Although there is light at the end of the tunnel, we don't know what we don't know? With that, we are planning to add several new events that we are calling Roadside Art Fairs, a practical, low-cost, low-risk approach to meeting thousands of new customers every day.
Information will be coming soon.
If the show must be cancelled due to Covid restrictions, booth fees will be fully refunded.

SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE AND SOME THINGS JUST KEEP GETTING BETTER
Now in its 20th year and featuring 175 jury-selected artists from across the country, the Berkshires Arts Festival is recognized nationally as one of the country's most respected summer art events. The Berkshires Visitors Bureau rates the Berkshires Arts Festival as one of the top ten "Hot Spots" in Western Massachusetts. It is highly recommended as one of THE places to go for family get-togethers and an extraordinary shopping experience. "With its relaxed atmosphere, great food, exceptional art & fine crafts, puppet shows, and live music, it's a great weekend for the entire family."

July 4th weekend kicks off the summer cultural season, and The Berkshires Arts Festival has become a summer institution, the place for artists to meet thousands of potential clients who not only appreciate and support the arts community but they are "buyers."
