The past meets the present at the Vermont History Expo, where the bygone days of bonnets, bloomers and horse-drawn buggies come alive. This ode to the state’s dynamic heritage highlights an era in which family farms and rural country stores served as meeting places for neighbors; where homespun clothing and hearthside stories were part of daily life. Nearly 150 historical organizations channel the best of yesteryear, with artisans, musicians and crafters offering visitors a glimpse into their ancestors’ lives. Authors, genealogists and reenactors get in on the fun, providing educational, entertaining activities ranging from fife-and-drum processions to informative displays.
Price: $5-10; $20 family pass; free for kids 5 and under; half-price for visitors in period dress.
