Entering its 18th year, the Berkshires Arts Festival has become a 4th of July summer tradition, attracting thousands of art lovers who come to the Berkshires for theater, dance, music, and art.

While most cultural events, such as Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, and the Berkshires Theatre Festival take place in the evening, the Berkshires Arts Festival has become the chosen daytime attraction for thousands of visitors. Artists from across the country have discovered that there is a strong customer base for higher priced work, and the potential to produce great sales.  

The Berkshires Arts Festival continues to thrive as one of the brightest small art fairs in the country. Visit www.berkshiresartsfestival.com for more information.
