The Vermont Arts Calendar is a statewide, crowdsourced, searchable directory of arts and culture events. Listings are free and seen by thousands of people throughout and beyond Vermont. Use the top toolbar to search and to view events in a list format, in a calendar, or on a map. Use the left sidebar options to filter events by category, tag, city, and Creative Zone. See an event you can’t miss? Add it to your calendar app with the click of a button.

Have an event you think we should know about? Click the button below to submit a free listing. Identify your event by the available categories, then add tags to get more specific about your event’s creative disciplines.

Once submitted, eligible listings are reviewed and published within two business days. Questions about your listing? Contact Content Manager Desmond Peeples.

Submitting an exhibit listing? We suggest submitting the opening reception as a single event, then the gallery hours as a separate recurring event. Please double check that you have entered your event’s time and date details correctly.
