The State of the Arts: Vermont Festival of the Arts 

August is a great time to experience art in Vermont. So…pack up the babies, grab the old ladies, and bring everyone up to Vermont. (sorry Neil Diamond)

The month of August 2018 marks the 21st year for the month long Festival of the Arts in the Mad River Valley of Vermont.

During the Festival of the Arts, local artist Gary Eckhart captures the beauty of the lillies surrounding one of the gazebos at West Hill House B&B.

The Mad River Valley, comprised of the towns of Warren, Waitsfield, Fayston and Moretown, is the geographic center of Vermont and Valley Arts Foundation is the center for the arts – a hub for creative activity.

The Festival of the Arts is one arm of the Valley Arts Foundation whose mission is to support the multiple interests of the Mad River Valley by encouraging and promoting participation in the arts.

Each year the Festival of the Arts brings artists from near and far, and from a variety of genre, to display, create and teach their art. You are sure to find something amazing as you visit the various activity venues. You can enjoy plein air painting, glass blowing, yoga, music, cooking, dance, theater, sculpture and much more.

All the events take place within 15 miles of our beautiful and peaceful West Hill House B&B. Check here for more information on this festival.
