The 4th Annual Hilltown Spring Festival is on May 15th at the Cummington Fairgrounds, produced by the Hilltown CDC.  New this year is a Kids-Made Craft area for children up to the age of 13 to sell their hand-made crafts and art.  The Hilltown CDC’s goals are to allow children to participate directly in the Festival, to reward them for their creativity, and to give them some real-world experience showing and selling their work. The Kids-Made Crafts area will be highlighted in a central covered area on the fairground, and all crafts and art must be hand-made predominantly by children.

The Hilltown Spring Festival is a family-friendly event.  It features two music stages (Charles Neville, The Primate Fiasco, Swing Caravan and much more); a Focus on Sustainability, including demonstrations of solar heat, hot water, and electricity, and information about local agriculture and home energy solutions; food from local hilltown eateries, including local brews; displays by adult artists and crafters, and children’s activities all day long, including a kids show with The Primate Fiasco!

This year children will participate directly in the Festival as vendors allowing for hands-on experience in showing and selling their crafts. Participants must be pre-registered and able to bring their own tables and chairs. The fee for child artists and crafters is $5.  Registration forms must be filled out and returned with registration fee to the Hilltown CDC:

Only a certain number of children can be accommodated, so register early. Vendors will not be charged for parking. If there are questions, call Seth Isman at 413-296-4536 x12 or email sethi@hilltowncdc.org.
