Cure your cabin fever at Thunderfest!

March 23, 2024

This awesome outdoor winter festival was born in 2012 as a downtown activity after the Thunderbolt Ski Race on Mount Greylock. It has become an annual winter outing for residents and visitors alike!

Join us on March 23 from 12-5 p.m. at the Adams Vistor Center for this year’s ThunderFest.
