Once known as “the asparagus capital of the world,” western Massachusetts is still home to hundreds of working farms and many more locally-owned restaurants and breweries. Now in its eighth year, the NEPM Asparagus Festival returns to the Hadley Town Common on Saturday, June 4 to celebrate the region’s legacy of agriculture and community.

Family music and entertainment, agricultural displays, kids games and live visits from PBS Kids characters.

Enjoy asparagus dishes with local food trucks and restaurants and local craft beer brewers.
Kimaya Diggs, Mamselle Ruiz, and Session Americana will perform on the Rooted in the Valley stage.
A “bunch” of homegrown comedians and storytellers “plant” themselves center stage.

Spend time outdoors, meet new people, get a free T-shirt and support your local community!
Be a vendor in the Farmers & Makers Market.
Watch the Hadley grass grow!
