THINGS TO DO

Cultural Heritage

 

Our region of Vermont is known as 'How Vermont used to be'. Many of the people that live in our area depend on the lifestyle that is not found in many parts of the country anymore. Even the neighbors depend on them, such as when they stop by the local farm to pick up a gallon of fresh milk or eggs. You can visit the wool shop on the weekends, or stop by the homebased bakery on your way to work for a fresh donut or pastry. Life is nice, to put it simply. And we open our homes and businesses for you to enjoy also during your visit to the Northeast Kingdom.

 

Once a year in March during Vermont Maple Open House Weekend, you can visit our local sugarhouses to learn about one of most valued Vermont traditions - making Maple Syrup - plus enjoy plenty of samples.

 

The beauty and remoteness of our region is a source of inspiration for the many artists and crafters who call this area home. Along our winding roads, tucked away among the woods, and on our main streets, you'll find galleries and studios to visit – oftentimes located in someone's home or barn. Once a year in May, many artists open their doors to visitors for the Vermont Open Studio Weekend. It's a wonderful opportunity to see how, where, and what they create.

 

Local Museums are rich with information on the region, including our history, agriculture, science, and traditions.

 

Every summer, the youngest of our thespians take to the stage at the Vermont Childrens' Theater. Acting workshops for kids ages 7 and up are held in a barn at the Wildflower Inn which was converted into a 200 seat theater for the performances. Follow the sound of music every Wednesday night during July and August to Bandstand Park in Lyndonville. Bring a picnic and enjoy the music of the Lyndon Town Band - a perfect way to end a summer night.

 

Be sure to visit Catamount Arts Center in nearby St. Johnsbury. The Center features changing art exhibits including work from local artists, movie showings including classic and independent films, classes and an extensive listing of local arts events including music and theater shows on their website.
