Witches, ghosts, and goblins roam the Village. Trick-or-treat in costume and learn how Shakers celebrated Halloween. Get spooked with ghost stories and fortune-telling, bob for doughnuts, hop on a “flying” Shaker broom, and meet Valerian the Garden Witch. All ages welcome.
Sample the best regional beers and hard ciders and enjoy live music on an autumn afternoon. Old-world and Shaker-style sausage, made with regionally sourced meats, and additional beverages will be available for purchase. Come early and enjoy the grounds — tickets include admission.
Take your barbecue love affair to new heights with butcher and charcuterie expert Jake Levin, author of The Smokehouse Handbook. Levin, a native of the Berkshires, will demonstrate mouthwatering smoking and curing methods and discuss the importance of buying local, pasture-raised animals—and how this decision impacts the environment and builds community connections. A farm-to-table dinner follows. Tickets include dinner, wine, and a copy of the book.
