Vermont Summer Events of 2018

Stowe Balloon Festival
Stowe | July 6-8, 2018

Come to the Stoweflake Hot Air Balloon Festival and let your spirit soar as more than 25 hot-air balloons fill the sky. Enjoy free admission when you stay at Stoweflake and don’t miss a single moment. View breathtaking launches, enjoy live entertainment, all while sitting back and relaxing with offerings in the beer and wine garden.

Stowe Balloon Festival
Essex Junction | June 21-24, 2018

New England’s largest and oldest quilt festival returns to the Champlain Valley Exposition Center. More than 400 new and antique quilts will be on display during the festival, and sewing enthusiasts can choose from dozens of classes, attend special lectures on thread painting and the finer points of quilt blocks, and enter quilt and sewing machine raffles.

Festival of Fools
Burlington | August 3-5, 2018

This playful event is touted as an all-in-one street performing/comedy/musical festival. More than 75 shows are scheduled at various downtown Burlington venues throughout the weekend; admission varies. The four main stage locations surrounding the Church Street Marketplace and City Hall Park feature continuous street theater each day.

Deerfield Valley Farmers’ Day Fair
Wilmington | August 9-12, 2018

More than a century old and still going strong, this agricultural-themed celebration brings together residents and visitors alike for fun, food, and a little friendly competition. Engines will be revving for the truck and tractor pulls, not to mention the always-popular demolition derby. Also on the lineup are a kids’ tractor rodeo, a craft and hobby demonstration fair, exhibit halls, a carnival midway, music performances, a classic car show, and a pie eating contest.

Stowe Classic Car Show
Waterbury | August 10-12, 2018

Organizers say that when this event began more than 60 years ago, Model A’s were barely old enough to be eligible, and the parking lot was filled with cars that now would be rare and valuable antiques. Year after year, automobile aficionados have flocked by the thousands to this show, now one of the largest and oldest in the Northeast. More than 800 classic rides and race cars will be on display at Farr Field in Waterbury throughout the weekend, which also offers a flea market, food and craft booths, and a street dance.

Vermont Cheesemakers Festival
Shelburne | August 12, 2018

With the highest number of cheesemakers per capita among the U.S. states, Vermont is justifiably proud of this industry’s deep roots within its borders. The coach barn at historic Shelburne Farms provides the backdrop for the best and most innovative examples of the cheesemaker’s craft — courtesy of 40-plus award-winning Vermont producers — during this young but growing event. There will be cheesemaking and cooking demos and workshops, and lots of goodies to sample, from every kind of cheese imaginable to Vermont-made specialty foods, beer, wine, and spirits. Tickets are available online now, so get yours before they (inevitably) sell out. This isn’t just one of the most popular Vermont summer events, it’s bona fide foodie heaven.

Champlain Valley Fair
Essex Junction | August 24 – September 2, 2018

Whether you’re a fan of agrarian Vermont’s finest livestock and produce, a thrill seeker who lives for carnival rides, or a food lover who craves the likes of jalapeno poppers, deep-fried cheesecake, homemade apple pie, and more, this is the place to be as summer winds down. The state’s biggest single event, the Champlain Valley Fair is packed with enough exhibits, vendors, rides, games, and entertainment to keep all of its estimated 300,000 attendees happy.
