Berkshire Carousel 

Guided Tour & Lunch

Built and carved by volunteers over 7 years, the Berkshire Carousel is the largest community art project in western Massachusetts! We will explore the carving studio, splash some paint on new horses, and gain understanding of the detailed work involved in producing the Berkshire Carousel. The beauty and craftsmanship rival those of historic carousels. The figures are modeled after those of the most famous carvers of the Golden Age of Carousels from 1880 to 1930. Three chariots have been constructed, and Berkshire residents have completed the artwork for the Berkshire scenes to be used in the 14 rounding boards in the main frame top.
