There is plenty to do in the Berkshires in December. But one of the iconic events, built around Norman Rockwell’s famous painting of a 1967 streetscape is “Stockbridge Main Street at Christmas.” The Stockbridge weekend is a full calendar, but the central event is a recreation of the Main Street as it existed in the Rockwell painting…down to the correct automobiles frozen in time. For a calendar of the events CLICK HERE.
The Berkshire Theatre Festival is again presenting A CHRISTMAS CAROL, from December 11 to December 30.
The Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield annually presents the FESTIVAL OF TREES from November 15th to January 4th, showcasing the amazing creativity of Berkshire residents and organizations as they decorate 200+ trees with this year’s theme.
The Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum, located across the street from Hampton Terrace has turned it up 12 notches this year for the holiday season, with seasonal decorations, special programming and events spanning from early November through New Years’. Click to their website for descriptions and calendars…more than I can list here.
Frankly, there is so much going on EVERY weekend in December, that I cannot make an adequate list here. Edith Wharton’s “The Mount” will stay open on December weekends until Christmas. All of the museums, The Clark, The Norman Rockwell, MassMoca are open. For a listing of special programs and events, try www.berkshires.org/events, and type in a date range.
And then stay at Hampton Terrace. We look forward to helping your plan your December stay.
