About the event

Flood the Streets with Art encouraged  the community to come together and express themselves through the mediums of art, writing, and music, as well as provided the opportunity to donate and support the 2024 flood victims in neighboring communities who are currently suffering the effects of flooding.


Professional artists and community members created art at locations downtown Montpelier. There was music in the afternoon at the Christ Church pocket park, and all proceeds from the performances benefitted local impacted communities.  The Brown Bag Concert Series, sponsored by Hunger Mountain Co-op, kicked off at noon - featuring both the Bent Nails House Band and saxophonist, Ras Moshe. Local talent, including Shidaa Projects, played music
throughout the afternoon. From 5 - 7 pm, the community gathered on the lawn at Christ Church to hear from community leaders, followed by a benefit concert, which featured Honeybee Steelband with special guests.
