Concert inside the State House


The Farmers Night Concert Series is a longstanding State House tradition.  Over a century ago, lawmakers would travel to Montpelier for the legislative session, booking rooms in hotels and boarding houses.  On Wednesday nights, the Farmers Club—an informal group of farmer-legislators—would gather in the well of Representatives Hall to entertain themselves, often with sing-alongs or casual minstrel shows.  Today,   performing artists from around the state, in genres ranging from classical music to bluegrass,  barbershop, poetry, dance and theater,  perform at 7:30 PM in the well of the House Chamber every Wednesday night during most of the legislative season, from late January through mid-April.  All performances are free of charge!
