Celebrate Holyoke is a free three-day festival highlighting music, art and food from around the Pioneer Valley. Next year’s festival will be held in on August 26, 27 and 28 in and around Heritage State Park. Last year, the beloved celebration made its return after a ten-year hiatus, drawing an estimated 10,000 to 12,000 people into the heart of downtown Holyoke. The committee is actively seeking volunteers and sponsors to help put on this great community event; those interested should contact Sigrid von Wendel at 413-210-5619, by email sigridvw@gmail.com or visit celebrateholyokemass.com for more information.
