Known for the abundance of cultural activities and events celebrated throughout the year, the Berkshires host dozens of annual summer and fall events that visitors look forward to all year. Tanglewood, of course, draws a huge crowd to the concert shed and lawn throughout the busy summer season. But Tanglewood isn’t the only game in town. Whether you’re a fan of music, dance, art, or theater, you’ll find a venue that caters to your passion in the hills of western Massachusetts. Annual events especially have a huge following. With a reputation for being the cultural hub of small to medium communities throughout the U.S., the Berkshires revel in celebrating everything from apples to ethnic films. Loyal followers of arts and craft festivals will want to plan a trip to visit us in both July and August. Hikers and fans of the harvest season flock to the hills in September and early October.3 colorful autumn leaves with title over them: Autumn events in the Berkshires.
