Wallingford Day A time honored tradition, Wallingford Day, will be returning this summer. It will be a community celebration with activities and entertainment for the town of Wallingford and our neighbors. There will be musical acts, local vendors, games, demonstrations from local organizations, tags sales throughout the village and more, ending with a fireworks display. It will take place on  Saturday, July 20 and hopefully will remain an annual event for years to come.  Organizers are looking for sponsors to help offset some of the expenses, including the fireworks. Organizers are seeking donations of equipment and services, as well as activity leaders, non-profits, vendors (food and craft), and musicians.  If you would like to take part in any way or have questions about Wallingford Day 2019, please contact wallingfordday@gmail.com or Jenn Galusha at 802-558-9629. Tag Sales If you have been thinking about organizing a tag sale, consider scheduling it on Wallingford Day on Saturday, July 20. There will be lots of fun activities in the village that day, so there should be plenty of bargain shoppers. If you’re willing to offer space for someone outside the area to hold a tag sale, then contact Jenn Galusha at wallingfordday@gmail.com or call 802-558-9629.

Music Notes Rev

Wallingford Town Hall Concert Series

Concerts are held on either the first or second Wednesday of the month.

Wednesday, July 10th – “The Moonlighters” is a Big Band group that has performed at dance and concert venues throughout the Upper and Lower Valleys of NH and VT, as well as central Vermont since 1994. The music of Glenn Miller, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Duke Ellington and many others are featured in each performance by “The Moonlighters”. The band’s fantastic brass section consists of three trombones, three trumpets, five to six saxophones and clarinets, a bass guitar, sometimes a rhythm guitar, keyboard and drums. Listeners will be transported back to an earlier time, when rhythms were easy to follow, the lyrics were simple and the melodies were lovely. Suggested donations of $10 to $15 per person at the performance. This summertime concert will take place at Elfin Lake, so pack a picnic and blankets or chairs and enjoy the music.

Wednesday, October 2nd – DaddyLongLegs returns for the one year celebration of Wallingford Town Hall Concert Series. This trio was wildly popular when they performed in October of 2018 at the very first concert in this series. The Town of Wallingford is eager to host them again. DaddyLongLegs features three of Vermont’s finest acoustic musicians. Violinist David Gusakov was a member of Burlington’s progressive bluegrass pioneers Pine Island in the late 1970s and now performs with gypsy-jazz outfit Swing Noire. Banjo specialist Rick Ceballos and multi-instrumentalist Matt Witten are well known in Vermont traditional, old-time and bluegrass circles. NOTE – this concert is on the first Wednesday of the month.

Wednesday, November 13th – Woodchuck’s Revenge. More details soon.

Wednesday, March 11, 2020 – Extra Stout – Vermont’s premier Irish band playing wonderful tunes in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
