Please read the Stowe Vibrancy response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Out of concern for our Stowe community and town visitors we are postponing our 2020 schedule of events. We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and will update our schedule as we are able. Please check back for time and date changes as they become available. Thank you for your support.
Stowe Vibrancy continues its production of 15 community events throughout the spring, summer, fall and early winter. The schedule of events begins on Memorial Day weekend with Chowderpalooza and Spring Art on Park and the best “People’s Choice” local chowder competition around. Gardens of Stowe, a garden tour featuring some of the most interesting and unique gardens in Stowe, is a new fundraising event on our roster. B3 Festival is a fun and festive event sponsored by Stowe Trails Partnership to kick off the Critical Mass Ride and a weekend of bikes, beats and brews! Art on Park artisan market series, now in its tenth year, creates buzz in the Village for 8 consecutive Thursdays each summer. The wildly popular Fourth of July parade is the centerpiece of a monumental day of fun, food and games, with crowds of well over 2,500 celebrating our nation’s independence. Saturday Cinema on the Lawn is a new and grand twist on our outdoor movie night, featuring a themed lawn party to engage and delight! British Invasion Block Party features Joey Leone’s Chop Shop, an outrageous British food court, a brew garden and a “brilliant” good time! Stowe Foliage Art on Park, featuring the 5th Annual Blue Ribbon Apple Pie Baking Contest, is a delightful way to kick off foliage. Finally, we celebrate the winter holiday season with an annual Traditional Christmas in Stowe.
Stowe Vibrancy is proud that thousands of residents and visitors come to Stowe each year to experience our community and to stay, shop, eat, and enjoy these events.
