“This new collaboration has several arts organizations in southern Vermont joining forces and convincing some of us that you could do far worse than spend the entire summer there.”
The New York Times
Since 2012, Southern Vermont’s most prestigious arts organizations have collaborated to promote Hills Alive — a rich and diverse calendar of cultural events and opportunities offered year-round, in every season. Premier arts venues – contemporary and fine art galleries, theaters, performance halls – can be found in four distinctive communities, each a popular destination for the arts with a rich accompaniment of award-winning lodging, dining, and recreational opportunities.
Hang your hat at a boutique hotel or a cozy bed and breakfast. Sample the farm to table food and drink that sets our region apart from the rest. Soak it up, and savor it. Enjoy a concert beneath the stars, pair a wine tasting with a symphony, or treat yourselves to an off-Broadway show right here in the heart of the Green Mountains. These opportunities and more are waiting for you. And you are invited!
