Fantastic Wantastiquet Festival

Fantastic Wantastiquet Festival Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Fantastic Wantastiquet is a new 'umbrella' festival covering Windham County and the immediate tri-state area, including Cheshire County NH and Franklin County MA. Most activities are concentrated in and around the Brattleboro area, but we explicitly embrace and publicize all arts and cultural activities in the larger area, particularly in the West River (Wantastiquet) valley watershed. The name 'Fantastic Wantastiquet' re-claims the original Abenaki name for the West River -- Wantastiquet -- and the larger Festival embraces traditional arts and cultural forms. In this inaugural year, the Festival is taking on special significance because Brattleboro has decided to embrace the Indigenous Peoples Day initiative in place of the National Columbus Day holiday weekend.

Location: Windham County, Vermont, Brattleboro
