At the crossroads of Routes 7 and 73, midway between Rutland and Middlebury, the picturesque and flourishing town of Brandon is well worth a visit. 


Brandon’s creative streak is undeniable. Studios and galleries are sprinkled throughout the town, and the artists themselves  are a moving force behind annual projects, ranging from parades, summer public art exhibits, mid-winter's Art in the Snow, and Vermont’s Open Studio Weekend in May.


Golfers can head to the Neshobe Golf Club -  one of the most popular in Vermont. Just  north from Brandon are the Green Mountain National Forest and the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area - a four-season recreational treasure for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and more. Nearby  Branbury State Park is great for camping and swimming.


Brandon’s revitalized downtown is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll or  leisurely enjoyment of an award-winning meal at any one of several distinguished cafes and restaurants. Niche shops surround the village green and two pocket parks overlook the Neshobe River Falls. Graceful historic buildings line the streets, including a covered bridge and the Brandon Free Public Library, a beautiful building filled with local history.  

Events All Year

The largest Independence Day Celebration in the Vermont kicks off the month of July, followed by the Basin Bluegrass Festival. Lovers of antiques and collectibles will relish the Great Brandon Auction and the town’s Yard Sale Day.  In the autumn,  HarvestFest invites the public to make their own “Leaf People.”  You can make your own celebrations in Brandon, too.  It’s the perfect place for a Vermont wedding, family reunion, anniversary or celebration. If you need a church, lodging, florists, wedding invitations, gowns, tuxedos, and reception spots – you’ll find them all in Brandon.
