Current List of Vendors - updated 5/25/23
The 26th Annual Mayfest Arts and Crafts Festival, Downtown Bennington’s signature event returns to Bennington for this annual rite of spring. Main Street will be closed to vehicle traffic and filled with over 95 vendors offering juried crafts and specialty food on MAY 27 between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Bring your family and friends to downtown Bennington to shop, eat, play, listen to music, and socialize. This event is free and open to the public with plenty of free parking downtown.
There will be many different types of live performances throughout the day on four separate stages including the Thomson Family Stage in Merchants Park as well as children’s activities, live demos, and much more. Artisans will be offering a wide range of products, from handmade jewelry, clothing, sculpture, carvings and paintings, to gifts, specialty food items, and so much more. Food vendors include such treats as Jamaican and World cuisine, fried dough, fresh squeezed lemonade, and cotton candy. New this year is the Young Entrepeneurs Corner where vendors aged 13 and under will peddle their wares!
The best part of all is that many of our Main Street businesses will be offering special activities and special deals throughout the day. We also have several wonderful restaurants downtown who will be serving up their own specialties.
