Young Tradition Festival Contest Finals

May 4, 2019, 11:00AM - 3:00PM

Saturday festival activities include the finals for the Young Tradition Festival Contest, including guest sets from past winners, held this year in Contois Auditorium at City Hall between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. The contest is designed to encourage young musicians and dancers to keep traditions alive and to support their involvement in traditional music and dance. In addition to cash prizes, the winners are provided performance opportunities in the region and linkages that would support continued involvement in traditional music and dance.

Contestants submit a video and bio of themselves, which are posted on the Young Tradition Vermont website. Young Tradition Vermont board members and past winners of the contest vote for up to 10 finalists, who are invited to take part in the May finals. On May 4, audience members and a panel of judges will add their votes, and prizes will be awarded in the evening at the showcase concert at City Hall.
