Montpelier Alive Announces its 2024 Downtown Event Grant Awards

May 14 2024

Montpelier Alive awards announces its 2024 grant funding to 10 downtown Montpelier Community Events


Montpelier Alive works to create a vibrant and livable Montpelier by celebrating its heart and soul: its downtown. One way it brings the community together is through events. Montpelier Alive’s annual Downtown Events Grant Program supports many of these events and is announcing its ten 2024 grant awardees.


The 2024 recipients are: All Together Now, All Species Day; Good Beginnings of Central Vermont, It Takes a Village; the Monteverdi Music School, Make Music Day; Montpelier Roxbury Public Schools, Race Against Racism; Pride Center of Vermont, Montpelier Pride Fest; Kellogg Hubbard Library, Fall for the Library; Satta Sound Langdon Street Block Party, and the Maple Roots Annual Music Festival.


In addition, Montpelier Alive prioritized events that celebrated Black History Month and Juneteenth in its selection process. The Montpelier Community Gospel Choir received a grant for a performance by the Choir, Shidaa Projects, and Montpelier Chamber Orchestra to bring the community together to celebrate and remember the work of Dr. Martin Luther King. Shidaa Projects will host a collaborative drum dance and recital performance to celebrate Juneteenth as well as holding other sessions throughout the summer.
