Shelburne Falls is the heart of ten small towns in the Deerfield River Valley of Massachusetts. Located on the scenic and historic Mohawk Trail in the Berkshire foothills, Shelburne Falls and the surrounding area is rich with natural beauty, talented artisans, four season recreation and an atmosphere that will make you feel right at home.

A popular film location, Shelburne Falls has been the set for two major motion pictures: Labor Day and The Judge. As you explore the Village, look for our stars that designate film locations.

Garden Reveries:
Paintings by Kerry Stone, Pastels by Rebecca Clark, Objects for the garden by Ashfield Stone, Gabriel Dark Stonework, Bob Compton Metalsmith

Exhibit: February 27 through April 25

What better time to dream about a garden than when the snow is deep and the temperatures low? Painter Kerry Stone and Rebecca Clark (pastels and paintings) show works inspired by flowers: from pansies in snow to gardens in full summer bloom. Ashfield Stone and Gabriel Dark Stonework offer bird baths made from boulders, stone cairns and a bench for resting and gazing at our artist’s interpretations of garden beauty. Bob Compton's steel dragonfly helps you remember the patio or pond that it needs to be near. This exhibit helps you reimagine your own garden or possibly, just possibly give you hope that spring is near!

We are very excited (for the 6th year in a row) to bring our SYRUP: One Sweet Performing Arts Festival to Shelburne Falls on March 21. The festival continues to grow - this year instead of one internationally acclaimed headliner, we're bringing a whole troupe of them! Nimble Arts (Cirque de Soleil, Big Apple Circus veterans) will bring their cirque spectacular RUCKUS! to the Memorial Hall stage. Incredibly, they've never performed their signature show in Franklin County or Southern VT.

PLUS we're kicking off a tour of the Pioneer Valley of our new musical clown show "Innocenzo" which has already attracted media attention in Europe. It's the first theatrical treatment of electromagnetic pollution, an issue many scientists consider to be one of the most significant public health threats of our time - particularly as it relates to children.
