June 24, 2023

Downtown Pittsfield partners will host the first of three planned Block Parties on Saturday, June 24, featuring a mix of musical and theatrical performances, beer gardens, food vendors, and more!

The first Block Party will be on School Street, right outside of Hot Plate Brewing Co. School Street will be closed from noon through 8 pm, and visitors will be able to attend free performances by Barrington Stage Company, Berkshire Theatre Group, and musicians Glori Wilder and Chantell McFarland. Local food vendors will include Cravin’s Ice Cream and Espetinho Carioca, and Hot Plate will be overseeing the beer garden. 21+ to drink.

Performance Schedule

  • 3:00-3:45pm – Celebration of Black Voices (Barrington Stage Company)
  • 4:00-4:30pm – Berkshire Theatre Group cast members sing select songs from the upcoming production of Million Dollar Quartet at the Colonial Theatre
  • 4:45-6:15pm – Chantell & Friends (Chantell is well known around the Berkshires for her soulful voice, wide range, and sultry tones. From scatting to arias, Chantell’s voice is a sensational treat.)

The School Street Block Party is produced by Downtown Pittsfield, Inc.; Hot Plate Brewing Co.; and the Mill Town Foundation, with additional support from Mass Development’s TDI, Allegrone Companies, and Zion Lutheran Church.
