COVID-19 Statement

Dear Volunteers & Friends of the Guthrie Center,

Take care and give care is what the Guthrie Center is all about.

As the COVID-19 challenges us all, we feel it best for everyone’s sake that we cancel our Wednesday Community Lunch, the Thursday night Hootenanny, and Praise Sunday (at least on April 5) until further notice.

Our office will remain the usual hours, Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. There will be some produce and bakery goods available on Tuesdays between 12:00 noon and 2:00 PM.

We have another exciting Troubadour Series booked for the summer and it will be on our website soon. Some shows are already listed on Facebook Events, and tickets are available by calling us at 413-528-1955.

We wish you all well and hoping to see you soon. Taking Care and Giving Care is the best thing any of us can do, after we wash our hands, of course.

Please keep in touch and watch for updates on Facebook and here on our website. We truly care about you and appreciate your flexibility and friendship!

Our Mission

Founded by Arlo Guthrie to honor the legacy of his parents, Woody Guthrie and Marjorie Mazia-Guthrie, The Guthrie Center seeks to cultivate cultural preservation, promote educational achievement and foster community outreach to meet the ongoing needs of the community.

The Guthrie Center was founded by Arlo to offer interfaith services and spiritual exchange. It brings individuals together for cultural, educational, and spiritual exchange. It is dedicated to meeting the ongoing needs of the community by working together with other non-profit agencies to serve those in need. In doing so we hope to create an environment where individuals can come together to cultivate a deeper awareness of culture, humanity and the environment of which we are all a part.

The Guthrie Center depends upon the support of donors and friends to help fulfill our ambitious goals and efforts.

Weddings and Private Events

Did you know the Guthrie Center is also a unique event venue? Absolutely all welcome! We have seen lots of happy couples tie the knot in our Sanctuary! Folks have had big birthday celebrations here! Memorials and reunions have taken place in this old church. We have provided the space and support for a number of different events and are honored to be a part of your special day.

Get in touch if you are planning a gathering and want a very special venue! It’s a setting that can’t be beat.

For prices and availability, call us at 413-528-1955 and ask for Rebecca!

Once signed up, grab a ride in a groovy microbus to Alice’s Restaurant (Theresa’s Stockbridge Cafe) where you can get breakfast and begin the 6.3 mile walk back to the church passing the “police officers station” to meet the Stockbridge Chief of Police, swing by the old town dump, enjoy an ice cream cone kindness of Ben & Jerry’s, and of course returning to the church where it all began over 50 years ago.

There will be water at every mile, along with a few snacks! Once you get back to TGC, stay for some free lunch & entertainment! What a great day of friends & “fun”raising for Huntington’s Disease!

Breakfast & Lunch donated by Theresa’s Stockbridge Cafe :)
