East Poultney Day 2020 is cancelled

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on large gatherings and activities, the Poultney Historical Society will be cancelling its in-person East Poultney Day event, which was planned to take place on Saturday, August 8th, 2020. We are very sorry to our vendors, patrons, and visitors to this event. 

If you were going to be a vendor at this year’s event and have already sent in your check, we will happily provide you with a full refund of your vendor fee! If you would like us to consider your vendor fee a donation to the Poultney Historical Society, we would be very grateful! Please reach out to us at [email protected] to let us know what to do with your vendor fee.

Although there will not be a physical, in-person event, we are working with our keynote speaker, Carrie Brown, to set up a virtual presentation to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment of a woman’s right to vote. We will keep you updated regarding a potential virtual platform for her presentation, Rosie’s Mom: Forgotten Women of the First World War, sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council. 

While we are very sad to cancel this year’s event, we feel it is the right decision to keep our Poultney community safe. We appreciate your understanding given the current circumstances and we hope to see you at next year’s event. 

Thank you,

Poultney Historical Society
