Vergennes Day is a great way to experience all of the charm of the Little City. With live music, walk-and-run races, local crafts and vendors, a chicken BBQ and even wagon rides, you’ll find more fun around every corner. Vergennes Day is sponsored by the City of Vergennes and organized by the Addison County Chamber of Commerce.
This year, Vergennes Day will take place on Friday and Saturday, August 26 and 27. Events will include a street dance Friday night, a pancake breakfast, 5K and 10K races, local crafts and vendors, horse-drawn wagon rides, bandstand music a chicken BBQ, a children’s venue, a rubber duckie race, and more. This is our 35th year!
Join the 5K and 10K races! The 5K run and walk will take you through our city streets, finishing at the City Green. It’s a great opportunity for friends and family to get out and participate in a fun-filled and healthy event. We’ll also have a 10K run for more serious runners, which includes a challenging hill climb on Route 66 at the 3-mile mark. Both courses have been wheel-measured, so you can feel confident that our distances are accurate. We’re hoping for a large turnout of runners and walkers this year, so please register online — and save $5! Registration on Race Day starts at 8am at the Steven’s house adjacent to the City Green in Vergennes. All races start at 9am. If you’re planning to register on the day of the race, please help us out by registering no later than 8:30am. (If you want a race t-shirt, we highly recommend you register online.) This year, our race will benefit Sweet Charity, a local downtown Vergennes non-profit. Help us support this great organization. The more folks who show up, the larger the donation!
