Throughout the day, you will be able to enjoy a variety of music and entertainment on two stages, with
a little something for everyone. Enjoy performances by returning groups The Reminisants with Oldies,

MetroFest 2022 will have a wide variety of fun activities for all ages to enjoy with more than 75 crafters,
artisans and exhibitors. Family-friendly activities will include Touch-A-Truck, magic shows, community
stage performers, classic cars and lawn games. Habitat for Humanity returns with their playhouse

“MetroFest unites residents, visitors, and businesses together from the MetroWest area and is the
largest arts and culture event of its kind in the region,” said Erin Lynch, Executive Director of the
MetroWest Visitors Bureau. This is the 9th year for MetroFest, and we are excited to continue to
showcase the tremendous assets across this region. There is so much to do and see! The MetroWest
region possesses such amazing cultural diversity and that is what we highlight at MetroFest–from the
food and music to activities, community entertainment, tastings of the region’s locally produced beer
and hard cider, businesses and activities. There is something for everyone and this is a family friendly,
FREE event. Come one, come all, and relish in the richness of the region.”
