Festival FAQ

We've just published a brief guide for you. These are some standard questions that we are fielding. For anything more custom to your situation, please find us at the Festival Hub.

Opening Night Party πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‰

While we are technically full, we do understand that there are certain aspects of the evening that folks will want to see more than others. For this reason, please expect to arrive 30 minutes before the scheduled section to claim your ticket or get your name on the waitlist. This is the process throughout the entire festival for all shows. Let us know how we can help you!

Woodbelly will be providing a cash bar and light refreshments and mingling will be in the lobby, overflowing into the downstairs/first floor of City Hall.

Of course if you can't make it to the Montpelier Chamber Orchestra's piece on Opening Night, they will be performing concerts all weekend. Here's their ticketing link.

Please do not forget this show is livestreamed so you can watch it from anywhere--even if its sold out! Here's the link.

Thanks to tonight's sponsors πŸŽ‰ πŸŽ‰

This party would not have been possible without the support of NorthCountry Federal Credit Union and the additional support of the Vermont Humanities Council. The Stetson-Yovu Charitable Fund contributed towards tonight as well.
