The Northeast Kingdom Chamber is the tri-county's largest and only fully staffed chamber, handling travel promotion, community/economic development, legislative/governmental relations, business networking and promotion of regional projects.

The chamber, based out of St. Johnsbury with about 300 members, is conveniently located at the Green Mountain Mall, across from JCPenney.

We believe the best businesses in the Northeast Kingdom are Northeast Kingdom Chamber members.

Cirque Barcode - Branche
Date: Saturday, July 31, 2021
Time: 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Highland Center is proud to present a public preview of Cirque Barcode's Branche, a circus show for people of all ages, played outdoors, that evokes with simplicity and optimism the climate crisis by celebrating the strength of community. In the show, the acrobats revolve around each other, on top of the other, climbing, jumping, pushing with a growing desire, an insatiable need to be higher and more dangerous. They build spectacular, yet fragile human pyramids. This frantic pursuit of infinite growth makes for a heart stopping scene of acrobats falling, slipping, and tumbinging down to the ground. The shock of their collapse permits the acrobatics to become conscious of their frenzy. They start to connect with each other and with the nature around them. A more tender acrobatic language develops between the artists and the trees. The bodies climb and support each other, in harmony this time, not with a desire for heights but in an act of participating in the collective. Branche adapts and evolves with the different urban and natural landscapes where it is played, from parks to forests to city streets, anywhere there are trees. Each show is as unique as the location in which it is played; its content is influenced by its environment. To better celebrate the beauty and the specificities of each location, the public is guided through three different natural stages by the artists throughout the show.

Juice - Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain
Date: Sunday, August 1, 2021
Time: 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain FREE concert series returns this summer!

“Who do we sound like? That’s always the hardest question for us to answer,” explains Michael Ricciardulli (guitar). “We have so many influences from so many different places. When it all falls together, we end up with songs that don’t sound like anyone else.” Blending rock, pop, r&b, and hip-hop, Juice embraced the diversity of their signature sound early on. The band - Ben Stevens (vocals), Christian Rose (violin, vocals), Kamau Burton (vocals, acoustic guitar), Daniel Moss (guitar), Michael Ricciardulli (guitar), Rami El-Abidin (bass), and Miles Clyatt (drums) - formed in 2014 in Boston while attending college. After graduating, the band recorded and released their first professional EP, 2018’s "Workin’ on Lovin." With new music and two old minivans, the band hit the road for an almost non-stop year and a half of national touring.

Get Thee to the Funnery Shakespeare Teenage Camp
Date: Monday, August 2 - Friday, August 13
Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Peter Gould's famed Shakespeare camp, "Get Thee to the Funnery,"ť will happen this summer outdoors under the BIG TENT at Highland Center for the Arts in Greensboro. As usual, the season is the first two weeks of August for this physically and mentally demanding day camp. Camp begins on Monday morning on Aug. 2 and will top off with at least one final public-but-safely-spaced performance in the late afternoon of Friday, Aug. 13th at HCA. This will be the 24th summer session of the Funnery camp, which always features great team-building and leadership training, developing the heart, mind, body, and voice of each camper. The study of this summer's play, "Midsummer Night's Dream,"ť will focus on Shakespeare and climate change, a crisis that Vermont Humanities calls an "escalating, perhaps uncontrollable catastrophe in the making."
