Family Friendly & Smoke Free

The Barre Heritage Festival & Homecoming Days is a family-friendly event. As such, we are proud to make it a smoke-free area!

Smoking: The BHF is a smoke free event and will be strictly enforced. There will be designated smoking areas in the city outside the normal festival area for smoking.

Alcoholic beverages: Adult refreshments are available at many of our downtown fine bars, pubs, and restaurants. If you do choose to drink, please do so responsibily. 

Pets: Due to the warm temperatures, loud noises and crowds of people, please consider leaving your dog home where it will be safe and comfortable. A message from the non-profit Friends of Vermont Dogs.

Strength Through Heritage

Barre is the fourth largest city in Vermont. While the community first developed around the milling available along the adjacent Winooski River, granite soon emerged as the key industry of Barre. In fact, granite from Barre, Vermont was used in some of the nation (and world’s) finest buildings, monuments, and memorials. Consequently, granite carvers from across the world settled in Barre making the city a rich mixture of cultures from all over the world.
