Southern Vermont Arts Center is once again hosting Halloween on the Hill - a free community event for families - and we'd love your help spreading the word at school!
This year, Halloween on the Hill will take place on Saturday, October 27 from 11AM-2PM at SVAC. Magician Tom Joyce will perform 2 shows (11:30AM & 1PM). We'll decorate Yester House for Halloween and have an art scavenger hunt, spooky crafts, delicious snacks, and goodie bags for kids.
Pumpkin Carving Fundraiser and Pop up Farmer's Market
Saturday October 27th 12 - 4pm @ Pickering's Greenhouse

**There is no cost to attend, just a suggested donation per pumpkin carved!**
We invite everyone to bring the kids, carve some of our pumpkins, hang out by a fire and celebrate the end of another growing season with us! There will hopefully be some vendors selling farm products or crafts as well. Kids are encouraged to wear their halloween costumes! See you there!
