Pittsfield enjoys the distinction as the
"City of Festivals." Perfectly placed in the heart of the
Berkshires, this surprising haven bustles with cultural and recreational
amenities. The first county agricultural fair in America was held here in
1810, perhaps portending its current-day reputation for celebrations.
Youíll discover many and varied concert series, art, culture, night
life, fine and fun dining, charming lodgings, a professional baseball
team, a multitude of parks and plenty of hometown celebrations and
Pittsfield embraces summer with an exciting Summerfest. The celebration
includes countless arts and crafts and other festivals, highlighted by
Festival Americana Weekend, July 3, 4 & 5. Donít miss the 4th
of July Parade that has a history over 150 years old.
Among other venues of Summerfest are top-quality exhibitions at the
Berkshire Museum, which houses American landscape paintings and an
inspiring collection of Americana; and historical and cultural programming
at Arrowhead, headquarters of the Berkshire County Historical Society and
former home of author Herman Melville.
