Champlain Valley Fair Grandstand Line-Up Announced

The staff at the Champlain Valley Exposition are busy preparing for the 99th Annual Champlain Valley Fair. The “ten best days of summer” runs from August 27 through September 5, 2021. In anticipation of Vermont’s largest annual event, Jeff Bartley issued the following statement with regards to the Grandstand line-up.
