Presented by Signature Sounds and named one of “fifty essential summer music festivals” by The New York Times, Green River Festival celebrates thirty four years this July with three days of music: a spectacular lineup of over 30 acts on four stages, the best in local food, beer and wine, handmade juried crafts, a wide array of kid's activities, camping, hot air balloon rides and a balloon illumination, for Western Massachusetts' largest outdoor event of the summer.
"The Green River Festival lineup gets more legendary by the year." - NPR

More camping information can be found here.

The hugely popular Green House Stage returns with pop-up acoustic performances throughout the weekend. As part of the festival's ‘Go Greener’ commitment, the house itself highlights smaller, sustainable living and acts as a pop-up stage where the festival's biggest performers let their hair down in an intimate, back porch setting. Watch past performance videos here.
For Green River Festival 2020, students from UMass Amherst's Building & Construction Technology Program and the Department of Architecture are designing and building with Kent Hicks Construction Co. a locally sourced, natural, repurposed, net zero house. This small, smart home will make its grand debut at the festival and serve as the new Green House Stage.
