East Poultney Day 2021

The Poultney Historical Society is planning its 85th annual East Poultney Day celebration for Saturday, August 14th, 2021 from 9am to 3pm. The theme this year will be Innovation & Recovery!

As you may recall, this day originated to recognize the rich history of Poultney. It is full of education and entertainment, remaining a much-anticipated community event. This year will be filled with new museum exhibits, traditional craft demonstrations, musicians, and children’s games and crafts. In addition, our three museums will be open all day to the public: the East Poultney Schoolhouse, the Melodeon Factory, and the Union Academy.

Last year, the Poultney Historical Society made the difficult decision of cancelling the 2020 East Poultney Day event due to rising concerns of COVID-19. This year, we are taking special precautions to ensure a safe and fun event that will take place as scheduled! This will include spaced out vendor areas, access to wash stations with hand sanitizer, and holding mainly all outdoor activities.
