We had a blast on Saturday, March 2, at the
6th Annual CARNEVALE VERGENNES: “The Time Machine”

Friends, we are so excited to share the official 2019 Carnevale Vergennes: Time Machine video with you. What a night. Special thanks to Dana Ambrose for capturing the spirit of this epically awesome, time-twisting night.

More than 200 people packed the Vergennes Opera House for an evening of costumes, entertainment, games and community spirit. In the past six years this event has raised more than $100,000 to support the Vergennes Opera House, Vergennes Partnership and Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes. These organizations are vital to our community and your continued support demonstrates that you believe the same.

To date (3.24.19), Carnevale Vergennes 2019 has raised $24,000 to be shared between the three beneficiary non-profits! AND…we are on track to surpass the $30,000 mark once all of the Experiences have sold through the balance of the year! Check out the Carnevale Vergennes Experiences here
