Berkshire South Regional Community Center (BSRCC) will host its fifth Annual Arts & Crafts Festival on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020 outside, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In a media release, Jenise Lucy, Executive Director of Berkshire South had the following to say about the upcoming festival.

We are looking forward to helping artists and crafters share their wares this season. It is through events like this that we continue to live our mission of bringing people together – safely, following all protocols, masked and socially distanced.

There is plenty of space outside on the Berkshire South campus, and vendors will be spaced out more than in past years. Foot traffic flow will be managed at the entrance to be sure people are safely spaced. People will enter on one side of the parking lot and exit on another.

Berkshire South was one of the first organizations to receive Great Barrington’s S.A.F.E. seal of approval for the safety processes the Center has instituted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
