New England Public Media Wine & Food Lovers Weekend
Burns Maxie

For over 30 years, supporters of public television have put their palates to work to help raise funds for the public television programs they trust and love. The Wine Lovers’ Weekend is generally held in Springfield in early March and features the Friday evening Wine, Beer & Food Tasting and the Saturday Wine Lovers’ Dinner.

Friday Wine, Beer & Food Tasting

Celebrate All Things Local & Agricultural

Held annually on the Hadley Town Common, The Asparagus Festival is fun for the whole family. From exciting PBS Kids games to visits from PBS characters like Curious George, outdoor PBS Kids games, storytimes, and partner activities.

There’s live music from Signature Sounds, local food and craft beer, agricultural displays and educational demos, plus over 100 farmers, crafters, and makers.

The Chef’s Spearit Lunch

This annual family event is like a comic book convention for PBS Kids, with everything from PBS KIDS-themed costumes and activities to live music, children’s books, and art. Proceeds benefit educational public media programming in western New England.

Kids can meet, hug, and take photos with PBS KIDS characters like Curious George and Clifford the Big Red Dog.  They can play and learn with PBS Kids-themed activity stations hosted by education-focused community partners.
