RAMBLEFEST

THE FEST

Scenes from past RambleFests

Party on Sunday

Held outdoors at the Adams Visitor Center at 3 Hoosac Street, admission is free to a festival full of music, food and fun in celebration of autumn in the Berkshires. There will be live musical acts,  local craft beer and local wine, great food, produce, outdoor recreation and craft exhibitors. Activities include a toasty campfire with marshmallows, pumpkin decorating and other activities for the kids. Leashed pets are welcome, so it’s fun for the whole family! Historic Train Rides by Berkshire Scenic Railway will also be available, right across Hoosac Street at Adams Station. The festival runs from noon to 5, rain or shine.

Live Music!

The consummate  rockers of Bacchus will be the headline act at RambleFest 2022. They cover the essential hits from The Beatles to now. From 2:30 to 5. Prepare to dance!

The dynamic duo of Mike & Mike will be our opening act, starting at noon.

ROCK ON!

Local Craft Beer & Wine

From our very first event, ProAdams has always featured local craft brewers and vintners. New to RambleFest this year is a selection from Berkshire’s newest brewery: Shire Breu-Hous based in nearby Dalton.

Balderdash Cellars from Richmond will be offering their fine wines by the glass. Balderdash has been at all of our 20 events. Welcome back!

In addition, non-alcoholic beverages will be offered at many vendors, including fresh cider from Adams’ own Jaeschke’s Orchard and some high octane coffee available at the Poseidon Coffee Kiosk.

Train Rides!

Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum will be offering train rides on their Hoosac Valley Service vintage rail cars. Their station is directly across Hoosac Street from RambleFest.  Rides available all RambleFest weekend. For tickets and scheduling information, please visit their website.

Hike on Monday - The Greylock Ramble

Since 1965, people that love the fall colors, fantastic views and a great hike in the woods gather at base of Mount Greylock on Columbus Day for the annual Greylock Ramble. It’s the ultimate way to experience autumn in the Berkshires. Free shuttles take hikers from Adams Visitor Center to and from the base of the Cheshire Harbor Trail from 8 am to 4 pm. Using the shuttle is strongly recommended, as parking near the trailhead is very limited. Shuttles will take hikers to the Cheshire Harbor Trail from 8 am to 1 pm, and return hikers to the Visitor Center until 4 pm. Pets are permitted on the hike, but not on the shuttles.

RAMBLE

Cheshire Harbor Trail

A favorite hike to the summit of Mount Greylock, the Cheshire Harbor Trail is the gentlest path to the summit, although still fairly strenuous. Round trip is about 6 miles and takes 4 to 5 hours.
