6th Annual Hilltown Spring Festival
May 12th, 2012
The Hilltown CDC’s 6th Annual Hilltown Spring Festival will be on Saturday, May 12 at the Cummington Fairgrounds! 2,000 people are expected at the Hilltown Spring Festival this year and entertainment will include musical performances and workshops, exhibits by artists and craftspeople, displays by local businesses, food from local vendors, a family contra-dance, kids-made craft bazaar, children’s activities and much more.
Here’s a recap from the last two years at the festival:
NEW THIS YEAR
New this year is an Emerging Artists Stage for musicians who have had little public exposure and have made little income from their music. Samples of their music will be juried by professional musicians, and up to eight emerging artists will be chosen to perform two songs at the festival. The music played must be original, and must be family-friendly (no “metal”, no “thrash”). There is a $5 fee for submissions and interested artist can email to email@example.com or mail P.O. Box 17, Chesterfield, MA 01012 by March 23. Include names, instruments, and a brief biography.
Also new this year is a family contra-dance from 5 to 7 PM (beginners and children always welcome)!
