Village stroll takes on circus theme

Juggler Tony Duncan performs during a previous village stroll.

WILMINGTON - On Saturday, July 23, the village stroll returns to downtown Wilmington! Bring friends and family to stroll the village and celebrate summer from 5 to 7 pm.
This year the stroll has a circus theme, with performers from Nimble Arts strolling through town to entertain.
They’ll also set up a “circus lawn” between the Village Roost and Incurable Romantic on West Main Street, where strollers can try some toys and skills.
Bartleby’s Books will kick things off with a pre-stroll author event. At 4:30 pm, Vermont author Catherine Drake will read from and sign her novel “The Treehouse on Dog River Road” at the bookstore.
Then at 5:30 pm, Bartleby’s will host a special musical event; Le Mechante et la Connard will perform acoustic and fun music with their own personal flair.
Throughout town, local vendors will be set up - including Dover Hill Creamery, with their local goat cheeses to try and buy. There will be circus-themed snacks - cotton candy and popcorn - in addition to local restaurants and shops being open late.
The welcome wagon will be out at the Wilmington Works booth in front of Memorial Hall, with lots of local information and answers to questions. The hall will also be open for the curious to peek inside.
The village stroll goes on rain or shine; in case of showers, circus performers and vendors will move inside Memorial Hall. For more information visit
