Additional Events

Drone Racing and Acrobatics Expo

Come watch fast-paced racing and dizzying acrobatics with Multirotor Vermont! This group of skilled pilots will race quad-rotor drones capable of speeds above 90mph through a course set up right at the fairgrounds. There will also be "freestyle" demonstrations where pilots perform flips, rolls, corkscrews, and other acrobatic stunts. Watch from the ground, or try on a pair of "first-person view" goggles to see the view in real time from the drone's perspective! Get a look at race machines up close and talk directly with pilots about the technology involved. Multirotor Vermont brings the rapidly growing sport of FPV drone racing, as seen on ESPN and beyond, right within your reach.

Multirotor Vermont (
www.meetup.com/nnedug/) and its members have organized drone racing events across the state since 2015, providing fast-paced action via remotely piloted quadcopters using first-person view cameras. It provides an inclusive environment for competition where every member makes a firm commitment to safety. It also works closely with the Northern New England Drone User Group to provide STEM education opportunities and promote responsible use of technology. MRVT is a registered chapter of MultiGP (www.multigp.com): a global drone racing league with over 1,000 chapters and 20,000 registered pilots.

A Letter from Kidsafe

This year, our Community Yard Sale will take place on August 11 from 8AM to 4PM and Aug 12 from 10AM to 12 Noon.

We will start accepting donations from Aug. 7-10.  Be our Yard Sale Superstar by setting up a collection point for your employees for companies, or store them in your garage or storage space. Contact Us us for more details.

Start Your Collection   

It's not too early to start digging through your stuff. Perhaps your garage needs some cleaning up? Someone else can benefit from getting your unused or underused items. Get your family, friends and neighbors collecting, or ask them to bring their donations to you if you have room.

Store your donations until our drop-off days on Aug 7-10 (times listed below). We will be collecting them at the same venue for the Yard Sale, the Champlain Valley Exposition or CVE. Follow the KidSafe signs once you enter the CVE on Route 15.
