Du Bois 150th Festival

"Great Barrington's Du Bois anniversary celebration will occur between January 15 and February 28, and continue throughout 2018. It will be like none other. The Town believes it's all about home. Du Bois was born here. Educated here. Worshiped here. As a teenager he wrote newspaper articles about our town. He worked at Searles Castle. Our town raised the funds to send Du Bois to college. He owned property here. Paid taxes here. Du Bois buried his family here. And he wrote glowingly about Great Barrington in his autobiographies and correspondence. Du Bois continues to attract visitors from all over the world to the 'best small town in America.'" --Randy Weinstein, Du Bois Center of Great Barrington
