Quinn says: Lenox, MA, in the heart of The Berkshires, has been
compared to a Currier and Ives sketch. This is especially true during
the December holiday period. And there’s nothing that says New
England better than Lenox village dressed in holiday-style.
Catch the spirit on the weekend of December 10 when the village hosts
the Lenox Caroling Festival. The festival is a gala weekend, a
Christmas stocking filled with holiday events. The celebration
of seasonal songs begins on Saturday, December 10. Thirty or more
of the Northeast’s finest choirs and choral groups have been invited
to lift their voices in a day-long songfest and competition, 10 am to
noon and 1:30 pm to 4 pm throughout the village (in case of
inclement weather, the festival will move to indoor venues).
During the weekend you can also tour many of the village’s renown
bed and breakfast inns, including Birchwood Inn (Our Lenox Bed and Breakfast is
offering holiday special rates this weekend — and throughout most
of November and December as well) and sample holiday treats from
our special local restaurants (Quinn notes that this is her favorite event,
ever optimistic that there will be some cookies that drop on the floor!)
Lenox’s unique shops and restaurants will also be featuring festival specials.
On Saturday, from 6 pm to 7 pm, enjoy the Carolers’ Reception,
award presentations, and sing-a-long at Shakespeare & Co. For a
great feel-good experience, moreover, see David Sedaris’ “Santaland
Diaries” 7:30 pm on Saturday as well as two matinee performances,
Friday and Saturday at 2 pm.
Trinity Church invites everyone to its Holiday Fair and Silver Tea
on Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm.
And what are the holidays without a gingerbread house? The Lenox
Library hosts the annual Gingerbread Contest on Sunday, 10 am to
This is a most special weekend, for sure, but everyday is special
in Lenox during the holidays. Come and celebrate the season of
lights with us at our Lenox MA Inn!
