We are working on additional events, COVID permitting. Two we can mention briefly: one for a picnic at a lake in June and the second for a gathering on the Burlington waterfront in September. We will also be scheduling a cruise and other events once the weather breaks. Stay tuned.

Best of VT Summer Festival

August 28, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - August 29, 2021 @ 4:00 pm

Thank you to those of you who have participated in our Okemo Valley Chrome & Craft Festivals in the past. We have reorganized this event into the new Best of Vermont Summer Festival, on August 28 & 29, 2021 in Ludlow, Vermont. We are reaching out to let you know that there will still be an opportunity to showcase your vehicle at this new event. We will be lining up specialty vehicles at the front of the festival along Route 103. Space is limited, so if you would like to participate, please let me know by replying to this email ASAP. There is NO charge to participate! Spots are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Car clubs can also participate as a vendor to help support and promote your organizations. The application deadline is this Friday August 13, 2021. Please click on the vendor application button below. Please also know that vendor site location within the festival will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Fees vary depending on size, location, needs, and chamber membership. To learn more and secure a spot at the festival, visit yourplaceinvermont.com/vendors or contact Carol at clighthall@yourplaceinvermont.com or 802-228-5830.
This event is being held on Okemo Field, a highly visible location on Route 103 at Bixby Road in Ludlow. (Directions at bit.ly/OkemoField) This event is rain or shine and the festival hours are 12 – 7 pm on Saturday and 10 am – 4 pm on Sunday. Admission will be by a suggested $2 donation (benefitting ag, farm & Taste of Okemo Valley programming), and a crowd of several thousand is anticipated. Planning for this event started in 2019 but was derailed by the pandemic, but the cancellation of other regional festivals in south central Vermont this summer left a void that Okemo Valley is thrilled to step up and fill.
We also wanted to let you know that we have secured Christine Malcolm & Sugarleaf as our Saturday musical headliner and Jenni Johnson & the Junketeers as our Sunday headliner. Each day will also feature several other musical acts including a BARN DANCE on Sunday morning with Ida Mae & the Terrible Mountain String Band!
Thank you to all our sponsors and partners. (Please go to the festival website page for a full list.) Special thanks to our festival co-chairs Scott Duffy from Rockledge Farm Woodworks & Alyssa Stewart from Stewart Maple & Marketplace! The Best of Vermont Summer Festival is presented by William Raveis Vermont Properties and is being marketed throughout the Okemo Valley region, the state of Vermont, New England and the Northeast. This festival provides a great late-summer opportunity for locals, new residents, second homeowners, and visitors from throughout the state and beyond to experience the best that Vermont has to offer, including beer, wine, spirits, specialty foods, artisan products, children’s activities, specialty vehicles and more – even some hot air balloons!
Please consider joining us to showcase your specialty vehicle, as a car club vendor or attendee! You can also follow and share the event on our Facebook page.
