At the very heart of the village you will find a picturesque Main Street lined on both sides by historic buildings peppered with businesses, eateries, and shops.

Right in the heart of Poultney, the downtown area plays host to many of our larger events and festivities year round.

With March comes Maple Fest, an annual festival that features a tree tapping ceremony, wagon rides through town, and a craft and food fair. In May Memorial Day brings a parade down through Main Street capping off with an annual chicken barbecue.

Come summer we have a Farmers Market every Thursday where you can find local and artisan crafts and foods. In July we celebrate our nations independence with a parade, fun run, and fireworks at dusk.

By autumn things begin to wind down, but not before the Rotary Club holds their annual Chili Cook Off in which families and organizations compete for visitor votes to be bestowed the title of Best Chili Chef.
