For patrons of the arts there are a couple of nice events coming up in the near future in the Green Mountain State of Vermont.
8th Annual Television and Independent Film Festival
On September 26 through 28, 2013 the towns of Dover and Wilmington, VT will play host to the 8th Annual Television and Independent Film Festival. At the festival you can see:
- 58 selections from hundreds of submissions of television, web series and film from fourteen countries around the world shown in venues in Dover and Wilmington.
- The Festival Mile which is really a 1.5 mile path through the center of Dover with live music, street performers, vendors, car shows, and park and picnic areas.
Wrap around all of that the beautiful fall foliage that should be getting pretty spectacular by then.
Vermont Open Studio Weekend
Vermont Open Studio Weekend is your opportunity to visit any of over 100 artists throughout Vermont on October 5 and 6, 2013. The Vermont Crafts Council, who organizes the open studio weekend, publishes a free booklet to help you plan your trip. The booklet can be obtained from Vermont welcome centers, galleries, and community centers as well as online here (PDF).
Plan for some leaf peeping on your trip as well as the foliage should be getting pretty close to peak by that weekend.
