The North Quabbin Garlic and Arts Festival, founded in 1999, is a wonderful expression of the talent and determination of people in our beautiful area of north-central Massachusetts. Although the festival has many areas of focus, including (yes) garlic and arts, it’s really a holistic event that tries to “connect the dots” among issues relating to food, creativity, energy, re-skilling, local economics, and community.
North Quabbin Energy has been involved in the festival for many years, running a booth as well as organizing presentations about local energy, agriculture, and other issues. Click below for info about specific years.
This year the Festival is back. Enjoy being on the field again where there are great vendors, good food and many other events. At the North end electric bikes, electric cars and the Portal to the Future with Renewable Energy and Local Living Talks, and “Imagine the Future” activities will be an important part of the Festival.
The links on the G&A Talks page will take you to Renewable Energy and Local Living Talks for 2022 — Speakers and details for each session.
