Ashfield Town Spectacle & Culture Fair
June 3 & 4
We are dancing, singing, flying, speaking, painting, and acting throughout the Center of Ashfield, from the community hall through the commons, on Main Street, to the Lake! And WE means anyone and everyone in Ashfield, the Hilltowns, and beyond. The Ashfield Town Spectacle and Culture Fair will use the whole town as the set, present-day Ashfield life and the town’s history as the subject, and YOU, the community, as the performers and creators. A celebration of Ashfield’s unique history of acceptance, freedom, and creativity, performed in the heart of the town by the people of this community.
We welcome ideas and participation - please join us for work sessions of stilt walking, flying, music and more, as well as discussion of history, ideas and questions, and planning and figuring out how to use the town to its best and most full imaginings. The work sessions are open to anyone who is curious about the project!
Call (413-628-0277) or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
