Autumn in the North Cemetery.

Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?

These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.

Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...

...seems to be working so far

First Annual Roots N' Bluegrass Festival

The Sturbridge Tourist Association is pleased to present a Roots N' Bluegrass Festival on the Town Common (Route 131 across from the Publick House) on Saturday, September 14, 2013, from approximately 12:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

There will be 6 bands, including the 7:00 p.m. headlining act, Tony Trischka Territory; also, the Blackstone Valley Bluegrass Band, Les Sampou, and even some zydeco music!

There will be delicious food for sale by Rovezzi's Ristorante and other local restaurants and artisans selling their wares such as pottery, beaded jewelry, wood carving, alpaca knitwear and dyed yarns, and watercolor paintings, to mention a few. And let's not forget the KIDS who can enjoy a bouncy house, face painting and a fun magician who will challenge your kid's senses.

This is a free concert and there is free parking. I suggest coming early to get good parking but be prepared to carry your items to the Common.

Libations (BYOB), coolers, lawnchairs and blankets are most welcome!
See you there and please pass this along to your friends!
