The 2021 Chester Festival on the Green will be held (rain or shine) on Saturday, September 18th and Sunday, September 19th, from 9am to 8pm.
For over 40 years, this annual event is has been held as a hallmark kick off to the beginning of fall foliage season here in our Vermont town, where hundreds of people converge on our historic Green from all over New England. We were disappointed to have to cancel 2020’s event due to the pandemic, but we’re coming back bigger and better than ever to make up for what we missed!
This year we’re celebrating with a special agricultural-themed event while again bringing together the best of our local craft and food vendors. This is a free outdoor event where you will find the center of town lined with vendors making delicious food and offering pottery, fine woodworking, fiber art, jewelry, photography, glass, and much more with something of interest for everyone. In addition to many new vendors and returning favorites, we’ll have artisan demonstrations, field games, farm animals, raffle prizes, and lots of family fun activities. Last but not least… We’re excited to announce a fantastic lineup of music artists will be performing live stage concerts both days (stay tuned for more details). Of course, be sure and take time to stroll through the village of Chester and enjoy its unique architecture and local studios, shops and restaurants… We can’t wait to see you again!
