The Vermont Symphony Orchestra Summer Festival Tour


Celebrate Vermont

If you wanted to, you could spend almost every weekend at a Vermont festival. From arts and music festivals to quirkier, more off-beat celebrations like Wardsboro's Gilfeather Turnip Festival, Bennington's GarlicFest, Stowe's British Invasion, celebrating vintage British cars and culture, or the Vermont Brewers Festival, toasting Vermont's lively craft beer scene, Vermont's festivals offer an escape from the day-to-day, as well as an opportunity to follow your passions or discover new ones.
