Bennington Trailfest

Bennington Trailfest – Saturday, July 30, 2022 – Noon to 3 pm

A free event for hikers and the community! Join us for workshops, activities, food, and entertainment, all geared towards increasing awareness of the A.T. and Long Trail. The event will increase support and stewardship of this outdoor recreational resource while also supporting hikers and building awareness in the hiking community of the benefits of stopping in Bennington or using our town as a base while hiking the trail.

The Bennington Appalachian Trail (A.T.) Community, a volunteer-run community group committed to raising awareness of the A.T. in Southwestern Vermont, invites everyone to join us in celebrating Bennington becoming an officially designated Appalachian Trail Community™. Activities on the 30th will be geared to both trail hikers and the Greater Bennington Community. Hikers will be provided transportation to and from the Route 9 Trailhead along with room and board. All attendees will be able to enjoy free food, live entertainment, trail skill demonstrations and participate in hiking workshops. We look forward to celebrating with all hiking enthusiasts, those interested in learning more about hiking, and all community members just wanting to have a good time.
