New World Festival

When: Sun., Sept. 4, 12 p.m.-12 a.m. 2022

Chandler Center for the Arts’ New World Festival celebrates three decades of Celtic and French Canadian song making this year, with a lineup worthy of a bagpipe brigade. World-class acts such as Cantrip, Le Vent du Nord, Connla and the Karan Casey Trio make appearances, and the many Vermonters who count Québécois, Irish and Scottish immigrants among their ancestors attend sean-nós Irish singing workshops, Scottish harp demonstrations and French step dance lessons. Kids get in on the fun, too, with a performance by No Strings Marionette and an instrument petting zoo. And the party never stops at the dance tent, where every hour a new band gets attendees boogying.

Price: $15-50; free for kids under 12.
