arts festival

The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts is a place where art & culture is a way of life. A visit to Berkshires.org will introduce you to this internationally famous resort community.

Entering its 17th year, the Berkshires Arts Festival has become a thriving summer tradition in the town of Great Barrington, attracting thousands of art lovers who come to the Berkshires for theater, dance, music, and art.

We are very proud that our Berkshires Arts Festival is rated by the Berkshires Visitors Bureau as one of the 10 Great Cultural Hotspots in Western Massachusetts.

Founded by Richard and Joanna Rothbard, owners of An American Craftsman Galleries, the Berkshires Arts Festival showcases top artists from all across the USA and Canada.

While most cultural events, such as Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, and the Berkshires Theatre Festival, take place in the evening, the Berkshires Arts Festival has become the chosen daytime attraction for thousands of visitors.

Artists from across the country have discovered that there is a strong customer base for higher priced work, and the potential for great sales has been consistent year after year.

The Berkshires is composed of 30 unique towns and two cities bordering Vermont, New York, and Connecticut and is equidistant from Boston and New York City.  2.5 million visitors travel to the Berkshires annually.
