Just down the road from Brook Farm Inn, on September 24th & 25th you can enjoy a quintessential New England pastime: the Country Fair and Quilt Days at Hancock Shaker Village: “A Heritage Farm Untouched by Time.” A farmers’ market, craft show and sale, antique tractors and engines, and chicken races (yep, chicken races!) are just a few of the offerings.

The “Harvest of Quilts,” a juried show, will include over 55 antique and modern pieces. Vote for your favorite and watch quilting demos. For youngsters there will be hay piles, face painting, balloon art, beanbag toss, sack races, and more.

We have coupons for discounted admission to the Fair, for the first ten guests who request them!

Then return to Brook Farm Inn, where tea is served on Friday and Saturday afternoons, and your hosts look forward to welcoming you back to your Berkshires home away from home.
