Check out the performance schedule for 2013!


A much anticipated highlight of the summer, the Festival has remained faithful to its mission of bringing top-quality, free, family-friendly entertainment to the residents and guests of Addison County since its debut at the end of the nineteen-seventies. Over the years, we have introduced more than 445 performance artists or groups to collectively more than 125,000 audience members. The roster of “alumni” performers includes homegrown talent from the Green Mountain State and entertainers from half-a-world away, solo artists and entire parades, traditional entertainers and those who’ve earned a reputation as “cutting-edge.”


The Festival on the Green has been acclaimed by Vermont Life as “the best series of free performances in Vermont” and as Vermont's “Favorite Festival.” The event has again earned the Addison Eagle’s “Readers’ Choice Award for Best Summer Festival.” In September 2005, the Festival Committee was honored with the Theresa S. Brungardt Award for outstanding service as an organization to Recreation and Parks in Vermont and on Town Meeting Day 2003, Festival representatives were on hand to accept the Robert Collins Recreation Service Award from the Middlebury community. We have also been distinguished this year and seven past times with selection as a Vermont Chamber of Commerce “Top Ten Summer Event.” Members of the media and of our Festival audience have graciously complimented the event with these words:

                        “Small town, big fun!”
                        “One of the best community-oriented music festivals imaginable.”
                        “A gift to the entire community.”
                        “Middlebury at its finest.”
                       “Excellent quality and variety of performers.”
                       “Love it all -- what a treat!”

“The Festival on-the-Green is the very essence of New England in summer. A blanket tossed on the grass, free music, good ice cream, friendly neighbors' faces and children dancing in the shadows of the gazebo. This is the America we have mostly left behind, and to which we keep trying to return.”
