6th Annual Fun Fest

A free festival featuring musical performances, entertainment, and crafts for the whole family! Listen to world-class music, try your hand at an instrument in our “petting zoo”, create a make-and-take craft project, get your face painted, play with giant bubbles, step on our giant piano mat, shop local craft vendors, and grab a bite from the nearby food trucks.  Música Franklin offers free after-school music and social justice training for youth in Franklin County. Through learning music, students gain skills that will help them succeed throughout their lives. Our mission is preparing students for a brighter future through music. We are joined this year by Art Space, who will be offering a participatory craft project. Fun Fest is funded in part by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies. Fun Fest is also made possible by the generous support of the following businesses and institutions: River Culture, Massachusetts Cultural Council, Community Foundation of Western Mass, Franklin First Credit Union, Greenfield Savings Bank, Greenfield Cooperative Bank, Franklin County Community Development Corporation, Paul Redeker Rental Company, Art Space, Freedom Credit Union, Franklin Community Co-op, PV Squared, and Stamell Stringed Instruments. We have an AMAZING lineup of performers for Fun Fest 2024, including The Afro-Semitic Experience, The RapOet with special guests the Bap Pack, Música Franklin students, the Expandable Brass Band, and Balloon Ben!
