The Okemo Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the dates for the third annual Best of Vermont Summer Festival! This two-day event is scheduled for Saturday, August 26 from 12 noon – 7 pm and Sunday, August 27 from 10 am – 4 pm in Ludlow, Vermont. The event will take place at Okemo Field on Route 103 the use of which is generously donated again by Lead Sponsor Okemo Mountain/Vail Resorts.

This festival is a great opportunity for everyone including locals, new residents, second homeowners, and visitors to enjoy specialty foods; wine, spirits & brew tastings; artisan products; fine art; awesome live music; ag demos; children’s activities; and more! The Best of Vermont Summer Festival will be marketed throughout the Okemo Valley region, the state of Vermont, New England and the Northeast.

A special thank you to William Raveis Vermont Properties of Ludlow is the presenting sponsor again this year, for the third year in a row. It takes a village to support a signature event like this and those who step up to the plate are greatly appreciated! The festival will be seeking additional sponsors in various categories who will then be listed on the chamber’s website here:

The chamber is also seeking partners, vendors, and volunteers including special event sponsors such as for the food tent, entertainment/music tent, children’s activities, design tent, contests or other special activities. Community service groups such as civic clubs, youth groups, and retirees are also invited to participate as volunteers to help set up & take down the event as well as help out during the festival. Sponsor discounts will be given to participating chamber members and returning vendors will also be given preferential locations.

The organizing festival committee is made up of new and returning chamber members from around the region. We are still looking for a few more volunteers for the committee and during the event itself.
