The world famous (okay, New England famous) Eastern States Exposition is happening in West Springfield, Vermont in 2021!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the “Big E” was not held in 2020, but is back in force for 17 days starting on September 17 – October 3, 2021. The State of Vermont is looking for food and beverage vendors to fill booth spaces in the Vermont Building, both throughout the fair, as well as on the one-day Harvest New England Day farmer’s market.
This is a great opportunity to get your Vermont food or beverage in front of a large audience of New Englanders (in 2019, 1.6 million people attended the Big E). For more information on participating, as well as vendor applications, please see the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets Big E information page. Applications are due June 15th for overall participation, and on June 30th for Harvest New England Day.
