Country Christmas Open House & Holiday Paint-In

Country Christmas Open House & Holiday Paint-In was named a “Top Ten Winter Event” for the second year running. The Vermont Chamber of Commerce invites event organizers to submit their events for consideration. A panel, comprised of Chamber members from various businesses around the state, reviews the applications and narrows the field to ten events. This designation allows for the use of the Winter Top Ten logo on marketing materials and the Top Ten events will be featured in the Vermont Winter Guide. “While I like to think the judges read through all of the event details that we submitted with our application, I’m suspect it was the stunning images of the 2013 event that secured our Top Ten spot”, says Mad River Valley Marketing Coordinator, Lisa Davis. “Last year, local merchants went above and beyond in decorating the community in greens and lights plus they organized seasonal activities which created endless opportunities for Valley Arts Foundation photographer Rebecca Silbernagle to capture the spirit of the season.” December 6-7, 2014 will be the sixteenth year for Country Christmas Open House, a two-day shopping event sponsored by the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce and the third year for the Valley Arts Foundation’s Holiday Paint In, an indoor variation of the Great Vermont Plein Air Paint-Out that takes place in August.
