Old to New: Stowe’s 250 Anniversary to the 4th Year of Art on Park in Stowe, Vermont
From humble beginnings 250 years ago to being recognized as one of America’s Top Twelve Small-Town ArtPlaces (awarded by ArtPlace – a collaboration of 13 leading national and regional foundations and six of the nation’s largest banks), Stowe, Vermont has grown to be the place that even visitors love to call home for a while.
On June 8, 1763, Benning Wentworth signed away the deed for eight new towns, one being Stowe, Vermont. The original village of Stowe was located at the corner of Stagecoach Road and Route 100 and by 1800, there were 23 families living in town. The village has grown substantially since then and now offers a vibrant atmosphere to its more than 4,000 residents, including a celebration on June 8, 2013 with plans for an ice cream social, children’s activities, music, trivia games and special guests.
The month of June is alive with amazing events to attend, one being a relatively new festivity – Art on Park in Stowe, Vermont. Thursday evenings from 5-8 PM, starting June 20th and running through August 29th, Art on Park in Stowe, Vermont offers locals and visitors a fourth season of streets lined with handcrafted products, from birchbark art to soy candles to specialty foods and teas, and much, much more! Look for the white tents right off Main Street and get ready to enjoy live music too!
