Festivals and Events
The Capital City loves a celebration!
Montpelier is a vibrant community with a very full festival and event calendar. Below is a general list of events hosted by Montpelier Alive annually so you can get an idea of what we are like. For more event listings, visit the community calendar and individual event pages on this site.
Montpelier Alive is fortunate to be generously underwritten by National Life Group, VSECU and Community National Bank. Due to the support of local companies like these, and others, almost all Montpelier Alive events are free of charge, and we are always adding events to the calendar.
In addition to the festivals below, we host business networking events we call "mix and mingles" four times a year. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for event announcements.
We have many volunteer opportunities assisting our staff with event planning and production. If you are interested in volunteering, email us at email@example.com.
We hope you will visit our event calendar and event pages often to see what's new; be sure to print out our event flyer so you never miss out on what's going on downtown.
