Like the Spring show, the price of admission includes entry into The Vermont Antique Expo and Sale on the same weekend. A traditional favorite, this three day show is all under two adjoining roofs. (Yes, we miss the majestic tents too! But after you’ve seen one small river inside a craft tent, you’ve seen enough!) The larger of our two shows, this is a great opportunity to get a head start on your holiday shopping. We hope you enjoy this year’s shows and discover that perfect something you can only find at the craft show. This festival features 400 exhibitors, face painting, clowns, entertainment, live music by original artists, food. This is one of the largest quality art and craft festivals in the region. Includes the best in traditional, contemporary and country crafts.

Since 1946. The first parade consisted of costumed marchers, a few floats, a couple of fire engines and a band. The parade has grown every year and has become one of the most cherished traditions in the community. The parade now boasts over 10 marching bands, 40 hand built floats and hundreds of costumed marchers. The parade has been a labor of love to many members of the Rotary Club over the years, some of which participated in the first. The parade is the single largest yearly undertaking by the club and serves as its biggest fundraiser. 100% of the funds raised from the parade go directly to the many community projects and scholarships sponsored by the Medford-Vincentown Rotary Club.
