Out & About in Essex

Out & About in Essex banner


Join us October 2 & 3!

Get Out & About in Essex on Saturday, Oct. 2 and Sunday, Oct. 3 to enjoy all that a fall weekend in Vermont can offer.  Local shops and restaurants will be participating as well as local artists and musicians. Want to find some great deals?  Essex is the place!  

Looking to toe tap to some tunes and have a bite to eat? Bring your chair or picnic blanket and stay a while. Essex and Essex Village are inviting you to spend the weekend exploring to find your next favorite place to eat and that little store that has everything. Performances will be scheduled throughout the community as you shop and visit Essex. Support your local businesses and enjoy the fresh air. Welcome!
