This Friday and Saturday, July 15 (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and 16 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) the Greenfield Business Association brings SummerFest to downtown Greenfield with fun for the whole family!
Sidewalk sales featuring both downtown Greenfield favorites and outside vendors will take place Friday and Saturday with extra vendors on Saturday.
On Friday, enjoy a concert at Energy Park with the kids from the Strings for Kids program at 11:30 a.m.
On Saturday, we have a whole bunch more!
Main Street will be closed to traffic from Federal to Wells to allow for a big block party! Parking is free in the Chapman/Davis Town lot on Saturday.
Enjoy live music on the Recreation Department’s new stage right on Main Street near Miles! The SummerFest stage schedule is: MEGAdance Zumba, 10:15 a.m.; Matt Kim’s Academy of Rock’s Rock Shop kids, 11 a.m.; Greenfield’s Tuff Riddim International, 11:30 a.m.; and Ashfield’s Kalliope Jones at 1 p.m.
Our bike and stroller parade will be led by Grand Marshall & GBA Coordinator Caitlin von Schmidt at 10 a.m. Come with your bike already-decorated or head to the bike-decorating table near the Brass Buckle between 9 and 10 to use the free goodies provided by the GBA. Four prizes will be awarded: best-decorated bike (kid), best-decorated bike (adult), best-decorated stroller, and best-decorated bikes (team).
The Kiwanis will hold their bike rodeo on Main Street near the Town Common.
From 11-1, stop by the WHAI/Bear Country Live Remote hosted by Matt Gregory outside Wilson’s Department Store and sign up to qualify for $1,000 in free gas.
At 1:30, check out the two Foster’s Pie Eating Contests on Main Street near Veterans Mall – one for kids up to 12 with a prize of $50 in Greenfield Dollars, one for 13 and over with a prize of $100 in Greenfield Dollars. The first contestant in each race to finish their delicious Foster’s apple pie is the winner! Visit the GBA tent on Friday or Saturday to see if there are any seats left at the table.
Looking to get some local luminaries wet? Come by the dunking booth at Chapman and Main to dunk some famous Greenfield faces.
If visitors need to get cooled off themselves, they can frolic in the “rain” provided by the Greenfield Fire Department’s ladder truck or visit Greenfield Savings Bank’s misting tent outside Green Fields Market.
At Court Square, the Greenfield Farmer’s Market will be open as always with the usual great live music and vendors.
We hope you'll join us!
