- Programs & Events
Join us on Friday, August 1, for Free Fun Friday, when everyone is admitted to the Village free of charge for the day. Free Fun Fridays are provided courtesy of the Highland Street Foundation.
Special events on Free Fun Friday include hay wagon rides, extra Shaker music concerts, and even more demonstrations of our extraordinary arts and crafts throughout the Village! The Round Stone Barn will be open so you can see how the baby animals have grown, and because August is usually hot, hot, hot, we’ll also have a water arc to help you cool off!
Special menu in our Village Harvest Cafe and casual fare in the Food Tent that’s just right for kids.
Hancock Shaker Village and our Village Store are open seven days a week, 10 am to 5 pm
SAVE by buying a combined ticket to Hancock Shaker Village and The Clark Art Museum, re-opening July 4.
Our Village Harvest Cafe, also open daily, is a great place for lunch!
Join us on Saturday, August 9, 2014, from 5 to 9 pm, for our Gala fundraising dinner and silent auction. Enjoy cocktails in the gardens in view of the fabulous Round Stone Barn, and a delicious meal of locavore food prepared by Chef Michael Roller. Then dance under the stars to Gregory Caputo’s Big Band sound — all while helping Hancock Shaker Village! Bid on the many tempting goodies in the silent auction, too! Proceeds from the Gala benefit the Village, especially the special cause-within-a-cause, which is the exterior restoration of our historic buildings.
Young Shakers Tours are BACK! This 90-minute fun-filled guided tour, held daily at 11 am, allows kids and adults alike to experience life as a Shaker child, circa 1830. Dress like a Shaker, tend farm animals in the Round Stone Barn, make something delicious in the Kitchen of the Dwelling — and even go to school (for a few minutes, anyway) just as Shaker children did! All children must be accompanied by an adult. Click on Shaker Adventures to register or call 413.443.0188 x100 for more information.
