The festivities promise a delightful trip down memory lane, offering retro-rad activities and unique experiences throughout downtown Greenfield. For those pondering on the best way to explore all that Greenfield has to offer, the old-school trolley is here to help. The vintage trolley will operate on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., guiding people through downtown Greenfield, hitting vintage shopping spots, historical landmarks, and excellent dining venues.

A highlight of the weekend is the Vintage Days Car Show, where classic and antique hot rods will make an appearance at Court Square on Saturday, from 4 to 7 p.m., bringing a touch of the past to the present. The streets will come alive with sidewalk sales, offering a chance to grab clothing, books, vinyl, and more. Dive into history with ghostly history tours, engage in vintage lawn games, and uncover Greenfield’s rich industrial heritage. Don’t forget to shoot a round of pool with a vintage cocktail in hand or catch a $4 showing of Batman [1989] at the Greenfield Garden Cinema.

Hannah Rechtschaffen, Director of the Greenfield Business Association, expressed excitement for this year’s event. “Greenfield has great vintage finds all the time, from Innovintage to Whitney Hill – folks in Greenfield know where to look for things like classic vinyl and beautiful antiques,” she said. “We hope people from all over Franklin County and the lower valley will come to check it out. There’s a lot going on in Greenfield, and this is the perfect weekend to discover it.”
