Mayfest Arts and Crafts Festival

Mayfest Arts and Crafts Festival Vermont Arts 2018

Downtown Bennington transforms into a festival of arts, crafts, activities, food, & entertainment. In 2018 there will be over 120 crafters and artisans from throughout New England featuring handmade crafts of wood, pottery, glass, metal, fabric, jewelry, and more. As always, School Street will be lined with ethnic treats including Indian, German, Thai, and American. You’ll also find favorites such as fried dough, gourmet seafood, wood fired pizza, BBQ, blooming onions, ice cream, and more!

Mayfest isn’t just for adults though; there are lots of kid’s activities, contests, and games. A dunking booth, the 4-H shooting range, the Trustco Bank bouncy house, face painting, and more also add to the fun.

Downtown Bennington may be host to over 120 vendors during Mayfest, but the best part is that it also boasts over 45 great shops as well. The Village Chocolate Shoppe, Bennington Bookshop, Jay’s Art Shop and Frame Gallery, and South Street Café just to name a few. Downtown Bennington is also home to over 15 restaurants.

Time: 5/26/18 10:00am - 5:00pm
Location: Downtown Bennington, Bennington
