Arts & Culture

The Northeast Kingdom is a region where simplicity overshadows technology, and the tapestry of hills, trees, lakes, and villages provides inspiration for artists, craftspeople, writers, and musicians. A stroll through the galleries, museums, studios, and workshops will reveal the influence of time and tradition on the creative spirit that has taken root here.

When you visit Vermontís Northeast Kingdom you will sense our story on every road, path and rolling hillside. You sense the history of many generations of Vermonters who have made the Kingdom their home and found a way to carve out a living in this rural area and you will meet and become inspired by many people who keep these traditions alive today. Throughout the region, in every season, you will find festivals, museums, galleries and local bookshops that capture our story in a variety of ways through arts, poetry, crafts, unique educational programs, and storytelling.

As the daylight hours slip by our story can often be heard in the lyrics of talented musicians, singers, and songwriters who often perform at local venue or at one of our many area theatres as local performers share original plays which depict life throughout the years in Vermontís Northeast Kingdom.
