The 1st Annual Lenox Rhubarb Festival
Saturday, May 25, 2013
Due to cold (it was 42°) and pouring rain, the first ever Lenox Rhubarb Festival moved from Reading Park into the Welles Gallery. Special thanks to the Lenox Library for graciously making the space available to the Festival.
Despite the weather, approximately 300 people attended the Festival!
The Birth of an Idea
A small rhubarb bake sale was included in a Village Improvement Committee plant sale, to gauge interest.
Turned out, interest was strong. And thus began an annual tradition.
