Southern Vermont's Charming Variety

Southern Vermont is known throughout the country for its performing and visual arts. Small stages and village greens are the epicenter of many southern Vermont communities. Summer Festivals like the Marlboro Music Festival and the Dorset Theater Festival attract world-class talent and an eager following. You may not even notice that a world renown performer or actor is picking up a gallon of milk next to you at the general store. This is Southern Vermont, a resilient community with creative nature. A place where people help their neighbors and wave to passers-by, a place that many wish they could call home.
