MayfestArts&Crafts Festival

Saturday May 23rd 2015
10AM - 5PM


Downtown Bennington transforms into a festival of arts, crafts, activities, food, & entertainment.  In 2015 there will be over 125 crafters and artisans from throughout New England featuring handmade crafts of wood, pottery, glass, metal, fabric, jewelry, and more.  As always, School Street will be lined with ethnic treats including Indian, German, Thai, and American.  You’ll also find favorites such as fried dough, gourmet seafood, wood fired pizza, BBQ, blooming onions, ice cream, and more!

Mayfest isn’t just for adults though; there are lots of kid’s activities, contests, and games.  A dunking booth, the 4-H shooting range, the Trustco bouncy house, face painting, and more also add to the fun. 

Downtown Bennington may be host to over 125 vendors during Mayfest, but the best part is that it also boasts over 45 great shops as well.  The Village Chocolate Shoppe, Bennington Bookshop, Crazy Russian Girls Bakery, Evans’ News, Jay’s Art Shop and Frame Gallery, South Street Café, and Panache just to name a few!  Downtown Bennington is also home to over 10 restaurants.
