A welcoming college town, Middlebury delivers a wealth of opportunity. There’s a thriving arts scene – museums, galleries, theaters, and performance halls as well as specialty shops along the main streets. Maybe you have a former musical instrument you’d like to dust off or a new one you’d like to take up – check out the Middlebury Community Music Center.
And there are plenty of specialty eateries with palate pleasing entrees featuring ethnic delights and locally sourced meats, produce and artisanal cheeses. The town has several grocery stores, a fabulous natural food co-op, and an extended summer seasonal Farmers Market.
In recent years it has also become the region’s hub of exceptional microbreweries, cideries, distilleries, and wineries. In the summer, Middlebury is host for a week-long Festival on-the-Green in July featuring talented jazz and folk musicians from the US and Canada, and the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival at the end of August.
