Annual Road Rally in Support of the Opera House (formerly known as The Ladies’ Rally)
We’ve given the “Ladies’ Rally” a face lift and a new name that captures the true spirit of the event, a magical ~100 mile road tour of discovery in Vermont, with friends, food, and surprise destinations.
All makes, models, years – cars, trucks and motorcycles – are welcome! Gentlemen and ladies are invited to take the wheel.

A Little Ladies’ Rally History
Started in 1998 by a group of woman serving on the Opera House Board of Directors who also happened to own classic cars, the Ladies’ Rally was originally conceived as a timed road rally with all female drivers (men could accompany as navigators but the ladies were at the wheel). Each year a new route is selected and a day of fun on the open road is planned.The Rally is the largest and most successful one-day fund-raising event to benefit the Friends of the Vergennes Opera House.
Over the years interest and participation has always been strong and today the Ladies’ Rally has expanded to include newer cars, motorcycles and even male drivers! Anyone interested in having fun, visiting some of the hidden corners and scenic byways in our region and raising money for a good cause are invited to register.
To date the Road Rally has raised over $190,000 for the organization that restored and now maintains and operates the historic Vergennes Opera House.
