The Okemo Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce is excited to host the second annual Best of Vermont Summer Festival scheduled for Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21 in Ludlow, Vermont. The event will take place at Okemo Field on Route 103.

This festival is a great opportunity for everyone including locals, new residents, second homeowners, and visitors! Some of the program highlights this year include hot air balloons, home design tent (new this year!), live music, agricultural demos (sheep, alpacas, donkeys, etc.), craft beverage producers (beer, wine, distilleries, etc.), artisan products, specialty foods, fine art, barn dance, classic car show, antique tractors, etc. Join us for a Cruise-In the evening before the festival on Friday August 19th at Benson’s Chevrolet in Ludlow from 5-7 pm. This year gate proceeds from the festival will support the creative economy sector in Okemo Valley. New this year, the festival has created a collectable Commemorative Poster made by Dan O’Donnell of O’Donnell Design. He will be selling these at his booth at the festival.
