Falls Fest 2013: Click here to visit the website for the Falls Fest held July 27, 2013 at the Beachgrounds Park. FallsFest is a free, day-long festival bringing together outstanding regional musical talent, sumptuous local cuisine and scintillating crafts from local artists and artisans – all made possible by the generous support of the business and nonprofit community. Sample the culinary offerings of South Hadley’s many restaurants, enjoy a cold beverage, wander by the artisan and business tents, have fun with the many activities for children and adults alike – or simply relax on your blanket or lawn chair and take it all in. Nestled on the eastern bank of the Connecticut River in historic South Hadley Falls, Beachgrounds Park is the perfect venue and FallsFest is the perfect way to enjoy a beautiful summer Saturday in western Massachusetts!
Thanks to the generosity of our many sponsors and a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, there is no admission charge for FallsFest, however a food donation for the Neighbors Helping Neighbors Food Pantry will be gratefully accepted!
