SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Plans for the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 37th annual Vermont Apple Festival are well underway, and we’re looking forward to another wonderful event at Riverside Middle School in Springfield. This year’s fair will be held Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. We are currently accepting sponsorships – the deadline for Red Apple, Golden Apple, and Apple Barrel level sponsors to be listed on our red iconic reusable shopping bags, which we distribute to the first 300 families at the event, is Sept. 6. Green Apple and Apple Seed sponsorships will continue to be accepted through the end of September. Sponsoring is a great way to support this wonderful event, which is a longstanding tradition in the community, a fantastic opportunity to get your business name out there, and also a way to support the chamber and the ongoing work we are doing to support area businesses and the revitalization of the Springfield area. For sponsorship information, please email or call 802-885-2779.

We also still have a few spots open for artisans and crafters. Have you been honing a craft, and maybe thinking about selling some items to support your creativity? Have you been tinkering with making birdhouses, or garden decorations, or whimsical fairy gardens? Are you a woodworker, sculptor, or metal artist? Do you enjoy painting in your spare time, or photography, or making paper crafts? Do you have a knack for knitting, or a penchant for pottery? Do you have a creative hobby that could become a source of income? Have your friends and family been telling you for years that you should take a stab at selling your stuff?

Take the leap, and consider submitting an application with the 37th annual Vermont Apple Festival. This beloved local event attracts visitors from all around New England and beyond. Several spaces for outdoor food vendors also still available. To apply, please call the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce at 802-885-2779 or email
