The Festival is creating greater awareness of the many cultural experiences available to the community and visitors. Where else could you enjoy the Brattleboro Literary Festival and EsteyFest or experience a wide variety of music from the Vermont Symphony Orchestra; the Miami String Quartet; the highly acclaimed Boy's Choir of Kenya; The Johannes String Quartet; The Revels Circle of Song singing troupe, or the Speaking in Drums Youth Ensemble? Or hear jazz master Roy Haynes and the Roy Haynes Quartet? Or watch The Love Show, a thrilling aerial, acrobatic, & juggling comedy performance? Or take a rattle-making workshop for mothers and daughters or get an eye-popping look at five of Vermont's leading comic artists?

Brattleboro will become the stage for over 45 different events including workshops and activities to give families and children a variety of opportunities to explore their own creativity. The New England Youth Theater, Brattleboro Clayworks, The Loft, River Gallery School and other organizations and artists will offer hands-on experiences for residents and visitors alike. A Festival 05301 Party is slated for Friday, October 7, hosted by the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, as part of Gallery Walk's moving party on the first Friday of each month.
