250th Gala Dinner

August 17 @ 4:30pm-8:00pm

$150

Please join us at the Bennington County’s 250th Kickoff Gala Dinner at the Equinox Golf Resort & Spa in Manchester, VT. All are welcome to join in the fun, celebrate history and support the fundraising efforts of the non-profit The Bennington Regional 250th Anniversary Commision.

Guests will delight in hors d’oeuvres and a four-course dinner featuring 18th century cuisine with a modern twist, meticulously crafted by Executive Chef Matthew Balut of the Equinox. A cash bar will offer signature period cocktails. Attire suggestions include your finest business casual attire or an 18th century ensemble. The event will commence with welcoming remarks by “Ethan Allen,” followed by an after-dinner presentation of historic songs and anecdotes from the American Revolution by Cosby Gibson & Tom Staudl.

All proceeds benefit a three-year fundraising campaign to support the commemorative years 2025-2027. It is anticipated that throughout the county this will include one or two regional events each year plus an enhanced Battle Day Weekend celebration, new and restored monuments, development of new creative works such as plays and murals, and the creation of educational programs, curriculum, and field trips, as well as other special 250th related projects.

On July 4, 2026, America celebrates its 250th birthday. In May of 2025, those in the state of Vermont will also be celebrating the 250th anniversary of Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys’ taking of Fort Ticonderoga, and in 2027, both the Patriot victory at the Battle of Bennington and the creation of the independent state of Vermont will be among the celebrations. The Bennington 250th Committee is a group of local citizens who have come together to help plan and coordinate commemorations in Bennington County during those three anniversary years.
