"We are pleased to announce that the High Peaks Festival has relocated to the heart of the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts, one of the world's top tourist destinations and an area renowned for its arts and culture, natural beauty and outdoor adventure. We will continue to uphold high peaks of artistic achievement amidst the gentle hills that surround us in our new home--the spacious and inviting campus of the Berkshire School. I and our stellar faculty look forward to welcoming our 2019 participants to the Berkshire experience!"
