The River Valley Artisans Tour is a cooperative event scheduled for Columbus Day weekend, Oct. 12 and 13 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. each day. Travel the scenic back roads of Southern New Hampshire/Vermont in the Connecticut River Valley during our peak foliage season while enjoying the work of local artists and artisans in their studios.
This self-guided tour encompasses the towns of Bellows Falls, VT, Chesterfield, Spofford, Walpole and Westmoreland, NH.
There will be a group of artists exhibiting together in the Westmoreland Town Hall, centrally located on Route 63 in Westmoreland. Start your tour here to obtain a map and see samples of the work from each artist participating in the tour. From here you may plan your trip to be as extensive or as brief as you like, taking in spectacular autumn foliage everywhere.
Don’t forget to bring your camera! There will be studios exhibiting hand-made baskets, paintings, sculpture, naturally dyed yarns, glass blowing, wood turning and jewelry along with local vineyards and all will have many items for sale.
Consider coming to our preview on Friday evening, October 11, from 7 p.m.-9 p.m. at the Westmoreland Town Hall. Pick up your map, plan your weekend and possibly take advantage of some Early Bird specials. Don't forget to sign up for the raffle at each artists' location. Also visit us at our website.
