Event Details:

The Better Bennington Corporation hosts the final 2023 First Friday on Friday, September 1, 2023 from 5pm - 9pm. The special theme this month is a scavenger hunt! This event is FREE and open to the public.

Main Street between North Street and Silver Street will be closed to traffic and filled with games and activities including the Rock Painting project: Benny, The Caterpillar. The street will have games (cornhole, pickleball, and more), outdoor restaurant service, sidewalk sales, and buskers. While the footprint is just a small piece of Main Street, all our downtown merchants are, of course, welcome and encouraged to participate and the hunt is not limited to Main Street...

In order to enter the hunt, you need to check in at the BBC info booth. Your hunt will be timed and the winner is the one who fully completes the hunt with the fastest time. There will be a junior hunt for kids 13 and under and a senior hunt for kids aged 13-90.

If you would like to be a busker for tips only, please contact Jenny:


The mission of the Better Bennington Corporation is to lead and support public and private efforts that enhance downtown as the vital commercial and cultural heart of the community.

The Better Bennington Corporation (BBC) is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion and believes these fundamental principles inform and strengthen the BBC's ability to respond to changing demographics and the needs of all who live in, work in, or visit Downtown Bennington.
