This community arts festival delivers fun for everyone and is a showcase for locally-made art, food, arts education and entertainment. Our festival has grown from a modest beginning in 2002 to a signature summer event for Waterbury. The Waterbury Arts Fest wouldn’t happen without the ongoing support of dedicated volunteers, a growing awareness of the importance of the arts to our local economy and quality of life, and the generous support of our sponsors!

The 2013 Waterbury Arts Fest will take place Friday evening, July 12 & Saturday, July 13, 10 am to 4pm.

Waterbury VT Farmers Market

We may just be small farmers with a small farmers market in a small town in a small state but we’re hip to social media. Perhaps it’s because we’re also small town sociable and we were social before social was cool. Or something like that. At any rate, please follow, like, and bookmark:!/WaterburyFMVT

The Waterbury Farmers Market is held every Thursday late afternoon and early evening through mid-October at Rusty Parker Park on south Main Street. You can’t miss it – after all, this is a small town. Plan to stay for the Rotary Concert Series afterwards at the same location.
