Colchester has a lot to be proud of. With summer in full bloom and the luxury of warm weather, we can partake of many events, services, and business offerings right here in town.
Whether you garden with seeds and seedlings from Claussen’s, pick your own berries at Paul or Sam Mazza’s farms, join Paul Mazza’s CSA, or shop Brigante’s vegetable stand, we have a generous selection of farm-fresh, local produce available in our community.
We take pride in our special events. Our Parks and Recreation Department hosts many throughout the year. Have you attended the summer concert series on Thursdays evenings at 7 PM at Lower Bayside Park? Take a picnic and enjoy music by the lake. On Sunday, July 31st, we’ll celebrate 32 years of Triathlon! With hundreds of participants and volunteers, it is one of Colchester’s most popular events.
With so many wonderful things to do in town, we want to share with visitors; so we now have signs in local hotel lobbies promoting the wonderful amenities we offer. We’ve recently placed Town logo apparel at Sam Mazza’s Farm Market & Dick Mazza’s General Store. They are great souvenirs, but also make nice gifts; tuck a tee-shirt or hoodie into the suitcase of a student heading off to college—it will remind them of home.
Another way to show your pride is by voting in the August 9th state primary election. If you’ll be out of town that day be sure to stop by the Clerk’s office to vote or request your ballot online in the new Vermont Election Management System: https://mvp.sec.state.vt.us/ Exercise your right to vote!
Enjoy the summer and experience the many amenities Colchester has to offer.
