Tomorrow is the big day-Asparagus Festival in West Brookfield!


It was at least ten years ago when the first Asparagus Festival was held in West Brookfield. The organizers did all they could, the day came and success. The location on the stereotypical New England common at the junction of routes 9 and 67 could not have been better. The entertainment was local and fun.

So now the festival is a town institution. It is expertly run by Amy Dugas and staff. The weather is forecast as sunny in the 70s. So, take a break from the Brimfield Antique shows and come up to West Brookfield and enjoy some asparagus which will be served all day.

If you want to read more about the day, let me shamelessly self promote the article I wrote last year for the Sturbridge Times Magazine. Click here and then on the left, click on the link to the May, 2009 issue and go to page 5.
