DORSET- The Vermont Summer Festival continues its tradition of family-friendly fun for everyone with another exciting series of six exhibitor parties planned for 2014.

The six-week Vermont Summer Festival runs through August 10 at Harold Beebe Farm. Each year, the show prides itself on providing exhibitors with top-notch competition in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Held each Wednesday, the exhibitor parties offer something for everyone at a variety of local venues, allowing the Vermont Summer Festival to thank its competitors and their families for their loyalty while showcasing Manchester’s area attractions.

The Bromley Mountain Thrill Zone will keep exhibitors’ adrenaline pumping on two occasions this summer, with exhibitor parties on July 30. Competitors are treated to a night of ziplining, alpine slides, and more summer fun before settling down for a delicious buffet at the base of Bromley Mountain.

On Wednesday, July 16, Vermont Summer Festival exhibitors will enjoy the picturesque Dorset Inn, which prides itself on providing visitors with a quintessential Vermont experience. For more than 216 years, the Dorset Inn has combined traditional New England hospitality with gourmet dining, fine wine, and great spirits.

The latest venue added to the lineup of six fantastic local restaurants and attractions is the Dorset Field Club, which will host its first Vermont Summer Festival exhibitor party on Wednesday, July 23. The Dorset Field Club will open its doors for an evening of incredible food and great sport.

The renowned Equinox Resort & Spa will host the final exhibitor party on Wednesday, August 7, where exhibitors are invited to enjoy the resort’s idyllic grounds. Nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains at the foot of Mount Equinox, the Equinox serves as the perfect celebration of a successful show circuit and provides an excellent send-off for exhibitors in one of the resort’s stunning ballrooms.

The first five Saturdays of the Vermont Summer Festival will feature a $30,000 Grand Prix. The $50,000 Vermont Summer Celebration Grand Prix will be held during the sixth and final week on Saturday, August 9. The hugely popular $5,000 3’3” Hunter Derby will also be held each Thursday for the first five weeks, with week six featuring the $15,000 Hunter Derby. The Vermont Summer Festival awards more than $750,000 in prize money, making it the richest sporting event based on purse in the state.

The Vermont Summer Festival is a proud member event of the Show Jumping Hall Of Fame, the Marshall & Sterling League, and the North American League. Email or visit for more information about the Vermont Summer Festival.
