JUNE 7 JUL 5 AUG 2 SEP 6
This summer Downtown Bennington celebrates the first Friday of each month from June to September. There's a wide variety of activities for these first Fridays when most stores will be open until 8pm. From 5pm until 8pm there will be live music on the Town Office lawn, carriage rides along Main Street, historical society presentations and exhibits, sidewalk chalk competitions, the Photo Voice exhibit by local students, in-store sales promotions, dinner specials, and a gallery tour and Art Walk.
The Art Walk will involve local artists exhibiting their work in stores, restaurants and galleries. Maps will be provided indicating all venues and scheduled events. Mark your calendar and save the dates of June 7th, July 5th, August 2nd and September 6th and be ready to celebrate our town.
The June 2nd celebration will also include the official opening of the “Catamount Pride” exhibit on the streets in downtown Bennington. Catamount Pride, a Bennington Chamber of Commerce street art project, will be on display throughout the summer and into the fall.
