The streets of Bennington, Vt., will be bustling with thousands of visitors this Saturday, May 29, for it's 25th Anniversary celebration of Mayfest: Arts and Crafts Festival. Mayfest is Vermont's largest juried arts and crafts show, featuring hundreds of artisans, specialty food vendors and live musical acts. Some of Vermont's finest jewelers, potters, painters, bakers, weavers, woodworkers, and so on, gather to celebrate all things hand-made and homemade. The Vermont Army National Guard will bring back their very popular 100-foot long obstacle course, the beer garden will again be serving thousands who appreciate the craft of beer, and the air rifle shooting range will be available for sharpshooters as well. More than 10,000 visitors will fill Main Street, which becomes a pedestrian-only thoroughfare this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in celebrating all things Vermont and the welcoming of Summer!
