When you think back to some of your favorite childhood moments, very few of them probably happened when you were sitting at home watching TV. Instead, your most poignant memories probably revolve around that time you ended up with the home run ball at a baseball game, and the crowd cheered and you felt like a rock star, or at least like Babe Ruth. Or maybe it was that time your family attended The Big E together and your dad bought you cotton candy and let you get all sticky-faced, and you watched your mom beat the midway games, and you felt like your heart was going to overflow with contentment and happiness.
In Western Massachusetts, events bring us together to celebrate our successes and recollect on our heritage. We’ve put together a list of some of the top yearly events in Massachusetts, things we and our local friends love doing to feel connected to our area and our community.

Known for spending extremely long hours working in his studio, frequently 12 hour days, we think Norman Rockwell would have no problem with social distancing! Visit our Virtual Museum and take a tour of his Stockbridge studio with Chief Curator, Stephanie Plunkett.
Our Museum Store remains online and fulfilling orders! You can custom order prints to be delivered to your own home and shop the collection here: prints.nrm.org/search/subject/spring/
