Celebrate Fall the Vermont way at the Southern Flannel Festival

Oct. 16-17 at 11 a.m. — BELLOWS FALLS — Celebrate fall in your favorite flannel this weekend at Rockingham Hill Farm, at the second-ever Southern Vermont Flannel Festival. Attended by nearly 2,000 people in Oct. 2019, the party returns after a year off with a two-day schedule packed full of fun for the whole family.

Rockingham Hill Farm is a stunning venue with its own natural amphitheater where music lovers can enjoy tunes by local acts including the Stockwell Brothers, Low Lily, The Breakmaids and Debbie and the Downers.

“The outside stage is near the rustic barn, with a grassy hill opposite the stage where music lovers can sit, look down and listen to their favorite blue grass bands,” said Bellows Falls Chamber of Commerce director Deb Collier. “It’s like an all natural amphitheater created just for our festival. There’s a field that wraps around the barn and flattens out for a fabulous setting for crafts and food.”

In addition to live music, attendees will enjoy craft beers, foods such as cider donut sundaes, and homemade pies in their entirety or by the slice, plus many flannel-themed arts and crafts. On Saturday, the public is invited to compete in a pie baking contest, featuring prizes from King Arthur Gifts, as well as a cornhole tournament.

Admission is $6 per person, with children under 12 free. Receive $1 off admission if you wear flannel.

Organizers ask that you leave your dogs at home (with the exception of service dogs), and follow safe practices. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available, and there is plenty of room to spread out at this outdoor event. For more information visit
