Discover all the Pillow has to offer

In 2021, the Pillow will hose our first-ever multi-platform festival, taking place both in-person and online. In addition to our annual Festival, the Pillow hosts numerous events year-round including convenings and classes, social dances, Pop-Up Performances, work-in-progress showings, special community programming, and a world-renowned summer dance festival. Events often take place at the Pillow’s historic 220-acre campus, but you can also find us online for new virtual commissions and screenings, as well as in neighboring communities, increasing engagement with Berkshire County and the New England region at large.
