Strolling of the Heifers Weekend: June 5,6,7, 2020 in Brattleboro, Vermont
STROLL WEEKEND – CANCELED!
We will not be rescheduling the parade in 2020. Looking ahead, we will explore how we can offer this time-honored tradition to our community while also working with Brattleboro’s downtown businesses and our parade partners to make sure there is added benefit to all. Most importantly, we understand the necessity and value of gathering and celebrating together as a community.
We know that our Stroll weekend in 2021 will be a welcomed celebration of our collective courage and resiliency.
Please follow us on Facebook for updates on all our events.
