About Stowe Vibrancy

Stowe Vibrancy is celebrating 10 years as a Vermont 501c3 non-profit corporation. Our mission is to increase the vibrancy of the Town of Stowe through the enhancement of social, recreational, cultural, economic, and physical characteristics of the village. Since our inception, we have done just that.

Consistent with our mission, Stowe Vibrancy produces or co-produces major events and series of events. In addition to our events, Stowe Vibrancy partners with the Town and many local businesses in efforts to support our Village infrastructure and economic development.

Our great success is the result of widespread community support, so we thank you. Enjoy all that Stowe Village and our greater Town has to offer!

More About Us

In 2007, at the behest of the Town of Stowe Select Board, a dedicated group of Stowe residents and businesses came together to brainstorm efforts to ensure the continued success and vibrancy of Stowe Village. Two years later, Stowe Vibrancy, Inc. was formed, and has since become an important public-private partnership for the Town of Stowe.

None of this would be possible without the support of our annual sponsors!
