FREE Fun Friday Event Returns, The Berkshires & Beyond
A handful of local institutions and many others across the state are celebrating Free Fun Fridays throughout the summer with free admission for the whole family.
The Highland Street Foundation, based out of Newton, Massachusetts, established in 1989 by David J. McGrath, Jr., the founder and owner of TAD Resources International, is once again providing free admission to museums across the commonwealth throughout the summer. Since 1989 the McGrath Family and the Highland Street Foundation have donated more than $103 Million to many worthy non-profit organizations including $80 million to groups in Massachusetts alone.

In Berkshire County, the program will get you free admission to The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown and The Mount in Lenox on June 28, Jacob's Pillow in Becket on July 5, Tanglewood on August 2, Hancock Shaker Village on August 9, The Berkshire Museum on August 23 and Mass MoCA on August 30.
