4th Annual Solo Jazz Piano Festival

April 24 - 25, 2020        8 PM

Location:  Vermont Jazz Center, 72 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT

Our fourth annual solo jazz piano festival celebrates the VJC’s nine-foot Steinway concert grand piano, a gift from the Mckenzie Family Charitable Trust. This festival honors the piano’s immense contribution in jazz by presenting leading and upcoming musicians who have devoted their lives to mastering the instrument’s creative potential and stylistic legacies. The event is both educational and performance-based, including, from all four of the headlining artists, master-class style presentations (offered to pianists and non-pianists) as well as a free-wheeling Q & A session panel.  www.vtjazz.org

Three-time Grammy award winner Terri Lyne Carrington grew up in a musical family – her first set of drums belonged to her grandfather who was Fats Waller’s drummer. A true protégé, she received a full scholarship to Berklee School of Music at age 11 where she was mentored by the legendary Jack DeJohnette. After Berklee, Carrington’s talent, ability and work ethic have earned her recognition as one of the most formidable musicians on the scene today.  www.vtjazz.org

Strolling of the Heifers Parade

June 6, 2020          10 AM

Location:  downtown Brattleboro, VT

Although inspired by Spain’s Running of the Bulls, the Stroll is just the opposite: a parade of friendly, ambling heifer calves, groomed to the nines, colorfully bedecked with hats and flowers, and led by future farmers from area schools and 4H club members. The Parade travels up Main Street and Putney Road to the Brattleboro Common, and starts at 10 a.m. sharp — but be sure to get there early, bring folding chairs, enjoy the pre-parade entertainment and check out local shops and eateries that open early.  www.strollingoftheheifers.com

Strolling of the Heifers Slow Living Expo

June 6, 2020          9 AM - 4 PM

The Expo features local food producers, regional craftspeople, lots of musical talent, continuous shows by the New England Center for Circus Arts, and much more.  www.strollingoftheheifers.com

Strolling of the Heifers - Tour de Heifer

June 7, 2020         8 AM - 4 PM

Location:  All of the routes begin and end at Robb Family Farm in West Brattleboro

Vermont’s most challenging dirt road rides! The Tour de Heifer’s 60 and 30 mile challenge routes follow dirt roads with minimal pavement. Both entail significant elevation change — that is, hill-climbing, and lots of it! Both the 30 and 60 mile challenges are loop rides with opportunities for bailing out. We also offer a less challenging (but still hilly!) 15-mile country ride with paved hills and a scenic riverside dirt road section. This is an out-and-back ride to the Green River Bridge. Don’t have a bike? That’s no excuse! West Hill Shop in Putney, VT will rent you an excellent gravel bike for $10.  Registration includes a farm-fresh lunch and entertainment back at Robb Family Farm.  www.strollingoftheheifers.com
