Pittsfield: Free Fun Friday at Hancock Shaker Village
Free admission and fun activities for the whole family will be offered during Free Fun Friday at Hancock Shaker Village on Friday, Aug. 1. Families can tour the grounds on their own, or join a "Young Shakers" tour at an extra cost.
Families can explore the Village’s historic buildings, watch artisans and costumed interpreters engage in woodworking, textile spinning, blacksmithing and other crafts, and try their hand at a variety of special activities available just on that day.
Special family activities and make-and-take crafts will take place in the Brick Dwelling from 1 to 3 p.m., and if it’s hot, there will be a water arc to run through. A sing-along of Shaker music begins at 1:30 p.m.
Free Fun Friday is made possible by support from the Highland Street Foundation.
