Shelburne Falls Moonlight Magic



The quaint New England town of Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts hosts a traditional event each year, Moonlight Magic. This event always takes place the Friday after Thanksgiving, and this year is no different. The event will be held on Friday, November 23 from 4pm-9pm.


Moonlight Magic is a kick off to the holiday season and in addition to shopping, there is the Lighting of the Village, the Parade of Lights, carolers, and street performers. But that’s not all! There’s a cookie shop at the Visitor’s Center, Santa’s workshop at the Senior Center, and for a spectacular view of the festivities, take a Trolley Ride at the Trolley Museum. Shops, restaurants and galleries are also open until 9pm to get your holiday started on the right foot.


Speaking of galleries, Shelburne Falls is home to many! What could be more lovely than a gift of art from a local artisan? Make sure to stop at the following:
