East Poultney Day, a celebration of Poultney’s rich history, is the premier event of the Poultney Historical Society. Always held on the second Saturday in August, this year’s fair will be on August 12, 2017 from 9 AM to 4 PM on the East Poultney Green.
The Poultney Historical Society is excited to announce the new theme for this year’s East Poultney Day celebration, “Music of Poultney: A Salute to Ruth Czar,” an event that will bring the Town’s musical history to life and will honor the past President of the Poultney Historical Society.
The day will feature Dr. William Tortolano, Professor Emeritus of Fine Arts and Music at Saint Michael’s College, as keynote speaker and performer. His program, “A Vermont Music Sampler”, will explore the significant and fascinating musical folklore of Vermont, and will include a slide presentation, music and commentary from Dr. Tortolano, as well as a demonstration on one of Poultney Historical Society’s melodeons!
The event will once again be a full day of activities, games, food, and of course – music! – for the entire family to enjoy. More than 40 vendors sell crafts and folk arts, antiques and collectibles, maple syrup, jams, herbal soaps, vintage linen, handmade pottery, jewelry, and more!
There are still spaces left for vendors at East Poultney Day!
Any vendor or demonstrator of traditional crafts and foods may apply for a space by contacting the Poultney Historical Society at 802-287-5252 or at [email protected]
