There will be two sessions from 9:00 a.m. to 12 p.m., and another from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

There is a $5 materials fee. Participation is limited, so they ask that you register by email on the northeast chamber of commerce website beforehand.

Two local Rutland bands will be taking the stage again for the first time since before the pandemic.
