Montpelier’s cozy, walkable city makes it an ideal place to celebrate the end of 2023 – something for everyone! Starting with a free movie at the Savoy at noon, followed by music, performances, dance, drink and food, going through midnight.
Shidaa Projects Inc., in partnership with Lost Nation Theater, is coordinating an afternoon of music, crafts, dance and other entertainment. The celebration, housed in five venues throughout downtown, is funded in part by a Montpelier Alive Downtown Improvement District grant and sponsorships from 802 Cars, Montpelier Community Fund, and National Life Group Foundation. A free animated movie at the Savoy kicks off the celebration at 12 p.m. and Shidaa Projects wraps up its celebration with The Beat Goes On, a collaborative performance between Shidaa’s Dance & Drum Troupe and Lost Nation Theater cast at City Hall. All events are by donation and first come/first seated.
