Hilltown Families and Iron Horse Entertainment Group have partnered up to offer a chance to win free tickets to see adult venues in the Pioneer Valley for a PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT! You pay for the sitter, we’ll pay for the tickets!

For April we are pleased to offer a chance to win a pair of tickets to see Carolina Chocolate Drops plus David Wax Museum at the Calvin Theater in Northampton, MA at 8pm on Saturday, April 13th, 2013.

Win tickets and take your spouse, partner or good friend for a night out. Deadline to enter to win is Tuesday, 04/09/13 by 11:59pm (EST). More details below.


Carolina Chocolate Drops’ members met at the 2005 Black Banjo Gathering in Boone, N.C., and have spent the years since revitalizing and refreshing a glorious tradition of African-American string-band music. But this is no mere trio of nostalgia-miners: Members Dom Flemons, Rhiannon Giddens and Justin Robinson are as likely to work with a progressive orchestra, or to reinvent Blu Cantrell’s R&B hit “Hit ‘Em Up Style,” as they are to draw on old-time jug-band favorites. —


Anointed as Bostons Americana Artist of the Year (2010 Boston Music Awards), the David Wax Museum has been called pure, irresistible joy (Bob Boilen, NPR) and hailed by for its virtuosic musical skill and virtuous harmonies. It is no surprise that its acclaimed performance at the 2010 Newport Folk Festival was hailed as one of highlights of the entire weekend by NPR. The Museum fuses traditional Mexican folk with American roots and indie rock to create an utterly unique Mexo- Americana aesthetic. Combining Latin rhythms, call-and-response hollering, and donkey jawbone rattling, they have electrified audiences across the country and are kicking up a cloud of excitement with their high-energy border-crossing sensibility (The New Yorker). —

    Hilltown Families has the most comprehensive listings of all family-friendly events in Western Mass. We have already attended many events we found out about on and our son is only 18 months old. Such a great resource!

    It’s amazing how Hilltown Families can keep track of and share all the many things that go on in the area each week. It’s impossible to be bored or not know what to do if you read the emails that Hilltown Families sends. They let you know what is going on in every possible category of interest.

    I use the web site to keep me posted on exciting things to do that are free or reasonable to do with friends. My favorite is the Hilltowns for everything interesting.
