Cultures will come alive during this year's Ethnic Fair!

Pittsfield Ethnic Fair Features Music, Dance, Food, and Craft From Around the World

It’s a day to celebrate the vibrant cultures right here in Pittsfield! Come out for this year’s Ethnic Fair, Sunday, August 8th. It’s a free event that brings food, drinks, and crafts from around the world right here to Pittsfield. There will also be live entertainment and musical acts and performances on two stages, including the Raptor Project Birds of Prey. The first two blocks of North Street in downtown Pittsfield will be closed to street traffic so dozens of food and craft vendors can show off their wares; plus there’s plenty of free parking.

Sunday, August 8, 12 noon to 6pm rain or shine (in case of rain performances move indoors to St. Stephen's Episcopal Church at 67 East Street.)
