New England's fall foliage can't be beat and this years Country Fair at Hancock Shaker Village is spectacular. Truly something for everyone -- the children enjoyed the goats and pigs in the round stone barn which is a marvel onto itself. The juried arts & crafts were more than top notch. Thee is something for everyone here from gardening to medical to farming to engineering to the arts. The grounds were in their typical manicured to perfection condition. (Their regular dining area far better than Samels that they had for the festival... they kept running out of chips and soda and you name it) Their regular restaurant serves top notch high quality items reasonably priced. Parking area is enormous and even with the high turnout for the Country Festival it was all very well handled and orchestrated. There are always on-going events that are well worth attending. Highly recommend visiting here and doing so often. I actually prefer this to Sturbridge Village by a country mile!
