Herring Run Festival

Celebrate Spring at Middleborough’s Oliver Mill Park for the Herring Run Festival

 Massachusetts’ Herring Run in is one of the most spectacular natural resources in New England. On April 11-13, 2014 join local residents, businesses and artisans in a celebration of this natural resource. The first annual Herring Festival features live animals, music, a variety of conservation activities and demonstrations. More information and a complete schedule of events can be found on Facebook (facebook.com/herringfriends) or Twitter (twitter.com/herringfriends). There is a Native American belief that herring “sing.” In April 2014, visit Oliver Mill Park in Middleborough and listen carefully: You might just hear them as they run up the Nemasket River.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Middleborough Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
