Vermont's Top 10 Events

Each year, a panel of independent judges chooses Vermont's best activities, selected for their diversity and wide appeal. This year's winners display a wide-range of family-friendly activities and represent many different parts of the state.

In order to qualify as a Vermont Chamber of Commerce Top Ten Event, events must appeal to out-of-state visitors as well as Vermonters; appeal to a diverse audience, including children and families; and due to the additional attention a Top Ten garners, the event must be able to accommodate an influx of visitors up to twice the normal count.
