2024 SUMMER SEASON

In 1949, Bruno and Claire Aron, a Jewish family from New York, purchased an abandoned Ventfort Hall, renovated it, and opened it in 1950 as Festival House: A resort in the Berkshires open to anyone who wanted to stay regardless of religion, ethinicity, or socio-economic status. Today, Ventfort Hall Association's leadership is reviving the Spirit of Festival House in programming, events, and operations.
