Franklin County’s Green River Festival has grown over the years into an annual tradition of increasing distinction. While its family-friendly weekend schedule continues to feed, entertain, and even clothe visitors of all ages via local food and merchandise vendors, kids’ activities and hot air balloon rides, its musical element has grown into something that’s nationally respected. Now drawing large touring acts such as Gogol Bordello (pictured), Brandi Carlile and Ryan Montbleau (among many others), the festival still maintains a hearty helping of local tunes as well, from artists including Rusty Belle, Bunk, Heather Maloney, Lux Deluxe, The Sun Parade, And the Kids and the Salvation Alley String Band. Advance tickets are available until July 19, and kids under 12 are free.

July 20-21, Greenfield Community College, Greenfield, (413) 773-5463, www.greenriverfestival.com.
