What's Happening in May 2014

May is when things really start to warm up around the Monadnock Region and the area starts buzzing with activity.  There are lots of great reasons to visit to the area in addition to all the fabulous outdoor activities.  Below are just a few of the more interesting ones.

May 3rd is the 7th Annual Greenerborough Festival, New England's Green Living Expo and Festival.  Walk through the exhibit hall learning about green products and cutting edge green technology, enjoy fantastic fresh made food from local organic farms utilizing green friendly processes and explore the rest of downtown Peterborough.

May 10th there will be a symposium called "Why Quilts Matter".  With keynote speaker Pam Weeks (click the link for her bio), the curator for the New England Quilt Museum, take a journey exploring both antique and contemporary quilts and their impact on American life.  There will also be an expansive display of quilts to view and enjoy.  Advanced registration is required.
May 17th is the 21st Annual Children and the Arts Festival.  Although children love this festival, it is definitely fun for all ages.  This year's theme for the "Parade of Giant Puppets" (a can't miss parade) is Fairies, Dragons and Other Mythical Creatures.  There will be other events all over town throughout the morning and afternoon.
