Green River Festival: Celebration of Woody Guthrie
Presented by Greenfield Community College
July 14 - July 15, 2012
This is the premier Franklin County Music event of the year! We take the best national talent, the greatest local food and fine crafts, the most beautiful hot air balloons and put it smack dab on the grounds of Greenfield Community College and VOILA! You are happy!
Three stages of music — the main stage, the dance tent (a fiesta for your feet!) and the River's Meltdown Kids' Stage — so there's something for everyone!
Of all the celebrations of the 100th birthday of legendary folk musician Woody Guthrie, none will be more heartfelt than the performance by his son Arlo Guthrie and the Guthrie Family Reunion, scheduled for Saturday. Three stages provide plenty of room for everything from zydeco to rockabilly, balladeers to string band jazz. And don’t miss the extras such as craft vendors and hot air balloon rides.
