About Stowe Vibrancy
Stowe Vibrancy is a Vermont non-profit corporation with a 501c3 fundraising arm, Friends of Stowe Vibrancy. 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 eight major events and series of events. The village is home to over 15 annual Stowe Vibrancy events, bringing thousands of people to Stowe to shop, eat, and enjoy the experience. 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!
STOWE VIBRANCY LAUNCHES 2020 MARKET SEASON
Stowe Vibrancy in Collaboration with Pinnacle Skis & Sports Launches Food in the Field
June 21, 2020 – This year, we will be hosting our Market (previously known as Art on Park), in collaboration with Pinnacle Ski & Sports on their lawn at 1652 Mountain Road, at the corner of the Mountain Road and Cape Cod Road in beautiful Stowe, Vermont. The Market aptly re-named Food in the Field will launch in mid-July and run until mid-September. We will be providing vendors who sell pre-packed/pre-prepared agriculturally based goods including food, soaps, salves and more! Most orders will be able to be made online for ease and safety of pick-up during COVID-19. We will ensure a safe Market at all times, and require all vendors and patrons to be masked at all times. Please keep an eye out here for more information coming soon, and also on our FaceBook page at: https://www.facebook.com/stowevibrancy/
April 29, 2020 – In partnership with CORK, Stowe Vibrancy is thrilled to launch a series of music live streaming during the time of COVID-19 to support our local restaurants and residents.
Our final Thursday Night Music Series features Stowe’s local girl band. The Blue Diamonds first joined together in 2017 for the Stowe Elementary School Talent Show and have been entertaining crowds ever since. Ali McLaughlin, Gillian Grimes and Zoe James, all 12 years old, have played in various venues from Stowe to Burlington over the last three years. This talented trio is sure to delight and is a testament to how far you can go with hard work and determination…and, of course, a love of music. Please join them for a Facebook live stream this Thursday evening performing ‘dinner music’ for your own special evening. Order your favorite bottle of wine from CORK and order your take-out meal from participating local restaurants.
Kick-back at home with your loved ones to a mix of popular hits and old favorites this Thursday, June 18th, 2020 with some amazing wine from CORK! Click to listen and dine with The Blue Diamonds…
