Foolaroo, a community-wide celebration across downtown Middlebury will feature world-class circus arts performers, live music, sidewalk sales, Middlebury Money giveaways, and free offerings and activities from Neighbors, Together. This event, produced by many partners, culminates the multi-year Middlebury rail-bridge construction project, and signals the rebirth of our downtown.
Foolaroo, is a twist on the five-year festival Foodaroo – this year focusing on live performance at various locations around downtown Middlebury. In lieu of food trucks, attendees are encouraged to support local restaurants as they rebound from COVID and construction.
Town Hall Theater and Middlebury Underground present a feast of “fools”:

2:00-2:45pm, College Park (across from Shafers), Cate Great, gravity-defying, high-end circus comedy.
3:00-3:45pm, Marble Works, Snap Boogie, America’s Got Talent & NBA half-time performer combining high-energy dance & crazy stunts.

4:00-5:00pm, Marble Works, Atom & The Orbits 7-piece dance band playing modern rock & roll.
Enjoy dinner at a local restaurant and then see the rollicking, side-splitting comedy Servant of Two Masters, live at Town Hall Theater, at 7pm. Tickets at townhalltheater.org or call 382-9222.
