Falls Fest seeks to capture the spirit of the Great Falls Festival and highlight Turners Falls’ rich local business and arts community. Festival sites and activities will be located throughout downtown Turners to encourage participants to explore the shops, restaurants, breweries, and businesses up and down Avenue A and on adjacent streets.
The event will feature music performances at Peskeompskut Park, Spinner Park, and on Third Street next to the Rendezvous. The Montague Public Libraries, the Great Falls Discovery Center, and the Friends of the Montague Libraries will host children’s nature activities and a free book sale across from Town Hall. The Shea Theater will host a makers’ market, storytelling, and interactive art installations.
The event is officially scheduled from 1:00PM to 6:00PM. Select locations will host music and activities further into the evening. See schedule here.
Falls Fest would not be possible without generous sponsorship from the Town of Montague, 253 Farmacy, and Greenfield Savings Bank with additional support from Klondike Resources LLC, The Rendezvous, Nova Motorcycles, Montague Public Libraries, and RiverCulture.
Falls Fest takes place every year in the month of October. The exact dates for this year's festival is October 21st, 2023. 1pm through 6pm.
Yes. At the recommendation of public safety officials, the Falls Fest Planning Committee has decided to close a segment of Avenue A between 3rd and 7th Street for the duration of the festival. Additionally, the parking spaces between 2nd street and 3rd will be blocked off during this time to facilitate pedestrian movement.
We recognize that this is a departure from what was initially discussed for this iteration of the fall festival but are confident that this plan will improve participants' safety and their experience of the event. It will also showcase the downtown and its businesses.
