Saturday, July 15th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


The Stars and Stripes Festival will take place on Saturday, July 15th, RAIN OR SHINE.... Bring an umbrella and hope we don't need one!

The HUGE parade takes place at 10 a.m. and makes its way from Powers Park, down Main St., turning onto Depot Street and then onto Center Street, ending on Park Street by Bandstand Park.
The fun continues in Bandstand Park with a special appearance by the Kingdom All Stars immediately following the parade.  Then the Sutton River Band kicks off an afternoon of music from 12:30 to 3:30 pm.
Lyndonville Rotary will have it's delicious BBQ going and there will be tons of folks with crafts, food and more! You never know who you will see at the Stars and Stripes! Don't miss it! 

Be sure and get to the downtown area before 9:30 a.m. and find a great spot for parade viewing. There will be traffic delays and detours when the roads are closed at 9:30 am so that the parade can safely proceed. Everybuddy's Casual Dining, Nick's Gas 'n Go, Lyndon Truck Center, the Laundromat and the car wash will be accessible during the parade, but there will be no through traffic in the downtown area until the parade is over.
