NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city is expecting an influx of visitors this year as the third Solid Sound Festival kicks off the summer season.
The North Adams Chamber of Commerce and Berkshire Cultural Resource Center, a program of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, are hosting an informational session on Monday evening how to meet those visitors' expectations and prepare for their arrival.
The session takes place at MCLA Gallery 51 on Main Street beginning at 6 p.m.
Business owners, local artists, neighbors and interested residents are invited to attend.
Representatives of Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, the North Adams Office of Tourism, and BCRC will present some of the highlights and happenings for summer/fall 2013, in addition to taking questions and engaging in conversation about becoming involved with the events.
In addition to Wilco's Solid Sound Festival, which is expected to attract around 5,000, the city’s summer tourism season includes DownStreet Art 2013 and the Northern Berkshire Food Festival.
