We are closed for a few days to get festive for Hancock Holidays. We hope you’ll join us on weekends beginning 

Friday, November 23 (hours and events vary)

Hancock Shaker Village brings the Shaker story to life
and preserves it for future generations.

Go back in time, forward in thought. Living history museum in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.


Saturday, November 24, 6pm, we continue the rich tradition of gathering together at harvest time to appreciate the abundant joys of the season. Share that special meal with your family and friends – and with people from around the corner and around the country and savor a candlelit evening in the 1830 Brick Dwelling. The menu reflects that the harvest is in – from the garden just steps away.  Proceeds benefit our farm intern program.


Join us for a relaxing evening as you design and craft a fragrant seasonal wreath to take home. Grab a drink, take a seat, and we’ll guide you step-by-step in using natural greens and cones to make a wreath to celebrate the season and enjoy its aroma.  Perfect to do with friends!  Registration includes materials, snacks, and wine. Reservations required.


Friday – Sunday, November 23, 24, and 25, 10am-4pm spend time with family and friends over the holiday weekend. The grounds are open for you to enjoy. Shop for the holidays in Shaker Mercantile for handcrafted goods you can’t find elsewhere. Warm up with spiced local cider and autumn lunch at Seeds Market Cafe.
