HillsAliveLogo-300x300 For generations, the hills and vistas of Southern Vermont have inspired artists, and patrons of the arts, to create and curate outstanding cultural opportunities. In this special place, Hills Alive celebrates four seasons of live music, world-class theater, fine art and masterworks. From Bennington to Manchester to Dorset, to the jewel that is Weston Village, memorable moments are here for the making.

Our storybook villages showcase premier arts venues – contemporary and fine art galleries, theaters, performance halls – with a rich accompaniment of award-winning lodging, dining, and recreational opportunities. Hang your hat at a boutique hotel or a cozy bed and breakfast. Sample the farm to table food and drink that sets our region apart from the rest. Soak it up, and savor it.

While warm hospitality, incredible cuisine and stunning landscapes make Southern Vermont a popular destination, our special events, exhibits and performances make it an unforgettable experience. Hills Alive is So Vermont. A concert beneath the stars, a gallery tour, an off-broadway show… A wine tasting and a symphony, a picnic among the sculpture gardens… These opportunities and more are waiting for you. And you are invited!
