On Saturday, October 1, the Dover Land Conservation Trust (DLCT) will hold its second annual Springdale Field Festival. The Festival will run from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., rain or shine.
“Protected open space is at the heart of what makes Dover special. We are thrilled to be able to celebrate the uniqueness of Dover’s rural character through the Springdale Field Festival which will pull together a whole host of local, Dover grown themes celebrating music, food, the Fall harvest, art and much more,” said DLCT President Tom French.
DLCT partner Needham Bank was heavily involved in the planning of the inaugural Springdale Festival last year which celebrated the DLCT’s 50th Anniversary. The Bank will continue its support again this year as an anchor community sponsor.
“The Festival is a wonderful way to celebrate the good works of DLCT but also provide a forum for all generations of Dover residents to enjoy the beautiful Fall foliage at one of Dover’s treasured open public access spaces in Springdale Field. We’re pleased to continue our support of this wonderful cause”, said Needham Bank SVP, Eric Morse.
Founded in 1965, DLCT is an independent non-profit funded solely by private donors with a longstanding dedicated focus on preserving and protecting the natural rural character of Dover.
In addition to Springdale Field, additional hallmark conservation parcels held by the DLCT include large tracts of land at Snows Hill, Strawberry Hill, the top of Pegan Hill, and fields along Pine Street to name a few. In total, the DLCT owns, manages and maintains over 600 acres in town.
Springdale Field is located at the corner of Main/Farm and Springdale, ¾ of a mile NW of town center on Springdale. Parking will be available. For more information about the festival, please visit the Dover Land Conservation Trust on Facebook.
