Buckland Common (17 Upper Street, Buckland, MA 01338, Buckland MA)

This seventh annual event has activities for all ages on the Buckland Common, in front of the Mary Lyon Church and several other venues along Upper Street.

The event provides an opportunity for families, friends, and the community to gather, celebrating what makes our community so special, and celebrating beautiful Buckland Center.  Visitors enjoy the simpler pleasures in life through conversation, participation, food, arts, engineering, and fun for all ages.   There will be live music by local musicians and the Shelburne Falls Military Band, local artisan demos like by Cynthia Fisher of Big Bang Mosaics, games for all ages with prizes, kid’s crafts, historical tours, food, old time engines, fiber arts, book, bake and tag sales and so much more. Kids will be able to explore their many skills and talents, and adults can enjoy a relaxing afternoon of friends, music, and local lore.  Smokey the Bear will likely also make an appearance.
