The Space On Main & Chapman’s General Partner on VT State Tourism & Marketing Project
Bradford & Fairlee, Vermont: The Space On Main and Chapman’s General announced Five Fest Music & Markets, a new event series coming to Bradford and Fairlee, Vermont this summer. Five Fest is a series that will occur 5:00-9:00pm on the nights of June 25, July 16, and July 23, 2022, timed around the dates of camper drop-off and visiting days for the summer camps of Thetford, Fairlee, West Fairlee, and Newbury, Vermont as well as Piermont and Orford, New Hampshire. The events are backed by a grant from Vermont Agency of Commerce & Community Development’s Department of Tourism & Marketing and supported by Catamount Arts and Crosscut Creatives.
The effort has included expanding the popular Discovery Map to include businesses in Bradford and Fairlee as well as marketing to people traveling to the region from outside of Vermont. The purpose of the project is to draw people to the region for evenings of fun and entertainment in order to get people to spend more time visiting the amazing businesses that the region has to offer.
Musicians coordinated by Catamount Arts for the festival include: Kotoko Brass, If You Must Know, Chat Hollister Trio, Jesse Taylor, Ward Hayden & The Outliers, and Zach Nugent.
Music and small business popup markets will be featured 5:00-7:00pm in Bradford and 7:00-9:00pm in Fairlee, Vermont on the dates of June 25, July 16, and July 23, 2022. For more information on Five Fest, visit https://routefivevt.com.
