Bennington Downtown transforms into a celebration of arts, crafts, activities, food, & entertainment. In 2019 there will be over 100 crafters and artisans from throughout the Northeast featuring handmade crafts of wood, pottery, glass, metal, fabric, jewelry, and more. The streets will also be lined with a great selection of food trucks featuring ethnic and American selections and you’ll find festival favorites such as fried dough, maple cotton candy, BBQ, blooming onions, and more!
Mayfest isn’t just for adults though; there are lots of kid’s activities, contests, and games for the whole family. While Bennington Downtown may be host to over 100 vendors during Mayfest the best part is that it also boasts over 35 great shops as well. Downtown Bennington is also home to over a dozen restaurants to choose from. Plan on spending the day enjoying all that Bennington Downtown has to offer. All this excitement and there’s no entrance fee and you’ll find free parking all throughout Downtown!
