Festival of Fools

The 15th annual Festival of Fools is coming to downtown Burlington on August 5-7, 2022! Festival of Fools brings over 100 free performances stretched across 17 hilarious hours filled with absurd antics, melodious music, and confounding capers. It’s all served up on Burlington’s historic Church Street with acrobatics, dancers, sketch comedy, and unbelievable musical acts.

Filling downtown Burlington with three days of fantastic music and fabulous foolishness takes a village and we couldn’t do it without the support of our longtime presenting sponsor Community Bank, N. A., our pitch sponsors: Leunig’s Bistro & Café, AARP Vermont, Hendrick’s Gin, Queen City Brewery, and Pet Food Warehouse; supporting sponsors: American Flatbread Burlington Hearth, Ben & Jerry’s, Eyes of The World, Rose Computer Technology Services, Vermont State University, and Red Square; and media sponsors: Seven Days, The Point Radio, and NBC 5.
