Mayfest Arts&Crafts Festival


Click here to download Vendor Application


Downtown Bennington transforms into a festival of arts, crafts, activities, food, & entertainment.  In 2017 there will be over 125 crafters and artisans from throughout New England featuring handmade crafts of wood, pottery, glass, metal, fabric, jewelry, and more.  As always, School Street will be lined with ethnic treats including Indian, German, Thai, and American.  You’ll also find favorites such as fried dough, gourmet seafood, wood fired pizza, BBQ, blooming onions, ice cream, and more!

Mayfest isn’t just for adults though; there are lots of kid’s activities, contests, and games.  A dunking booth, the 4-H shooting range, the Trustco Bank bouncy house, face painting, and more also add to the fun. 

Downtown Bennington may be host to over 125 vendors during Mayfest, but the best part is that it also boasts over 45 great shops as well.  The Village Chocolate Shoppe, Bennington Bookshop, Crazy Russian Girls Bakery, Jay’s Art Shop and Frame Gallery, and South Street CafĂ©. Downtown Bennington is also home to over 12 restaurants. 

Since we receive many calls throughout the year for contact information for vendors who appeared at Mayfest, we have published below the links to those websites of the vendors who have an internet presence. Just click on the address and you will be redirected to their site.
