Shelburne Falls galleries and businesses celebrate a different theme or simply focus on what's new in their venue the 2nd Saturday of each month. Please come and enjoy all our small town has to offer.
RACE DAY! The Bridge of Flowers Road Race happens bright and early on the second Saturday of August. The gallery opens as usual at 11am when most of the running will be over. The event at Salmon Falls has nothing to do with running, but does celebrate the beauty of our New England landscapes, something local runners enjoy everyday while putting in their miles.
