Strolling of the Heifers Friday Kick-Off Festival

7 June, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join the Strolling of the Heifers as we kick-off a full weekend of fun events that bring thousands of visitors and locals to downtown Brattleboro.

Visit the Slow Living Expo Friday Night Kick-Off at the Brattleboro Common on Park Place where food trucks, crafters and other vendors are open from 5-9 pm. The Moover bus will provide free rides to the Common and back, from downtown Brattleboro, throughout the evening.

The River Garden is hosting a Specialty Food and Vermont Beverages Expo, where you may sample and purchase tasty products from regional vendors.  Our deck with a splendid view of the Connecticut River and Wantastiquet Mountain will be open to visitors! There will be several Vermont makers of alcohol beverages (including beers, distilled spirits, mead, ciders, and wines) sampling and selling their specialty beverages to adults with ID, age 21 and older.

Sample entries in the Culinary Bread Baking Contest  and hear who wins the 2019 Award for Best Bread. Music and more!  Enjoy our June art exhibit at the River Garden, as part of Brattleboro’s Gallery Walk.
