Best Bets in the Berkshires and Southern Vermont for Oct. 6 - 12

Harvest fest

Botanical Garden fall fun

It's time for the Berkshire Botanical Garden's annual Harvest Festival on Saturday and Sunday. Demonstrations, kids' activities, live entertainment and food are on tap from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Stockbridge, Mass., garden.


Admire historic mode of travel

Take a step back in time this weekend and admire the Gilded Age sport of coaching with meticulously restored horse-drawn carriages. See the action on Sunday, as they pass through the village of Stockbridge, Mass., around 11:15 a.m. and the same time on Monday.


Staged reading of 'Hamlet'

Finn Wittrock (of "American Horror Story" and "The Big Short") will perform a staged reading of "Hamlet" at 7 p.m. on Saturday at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, Mass. A reception with the cast will follow the reading.


Cheers to October!

It isn't October without some Oktoberfest fun — so join in at the 6th Annual NorShaft Lions Oktoberfest held Saturday at Colgate Park in Bennington, Vt. The Rymanowski Brothers will be playing and of course beer and food will be for sale.
