Unhurried, Unspoiled, Unforgettable

A HISTORIC DOWNTOWN

Welcome to a classic New England village. Dubbed the “Art & Soul” of Vermont, Brandon invites you to experience the best of both worlds: a vibrant, walkable center of art galleries, studios, shops, lodging and restaurants, including French Chef-owned Café Provence, and a gateway to the best of four-season outdoor recreation. Brandon is a study in early American architecture and Vermont history with its entire downtown core of 243 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's no wonder that it is known as being a wonderful locale for destination weddings.

Visit The Brandon Area Chamber of Commerce for information about the many things to do in Brandon's little corner of the Champlain Valley and the Green Mountains, including a busy summer schedule of events at the historic Town Hall and year round music and art offerings at Compass Music & Arts , Brandon Music and the Brandon Artist Guild. Go to Brandon Vermont Gateway for a series of guides geared to aiding visitors and locals alike in the pursuit of exploration and enjoyment.

When you visit, be sure to stop into the official welcome center, the Stephen A. Douglas Birthplace and Museum.

For more information, visit Main Street Brandon or call (802) 247-6401.
