17th Annual August West Festival

August 21, 2021 | 12:00pm – 6:00pm

Now in its 17th year, the August West Festival both celebrates the music of The Grateful Dead, but also the community in and around the Jay Peak Area. The Festival has grown a bit in size, but the intent is still the same. It’s a great way to spend the day – kids and well-mannered dogs are welcome, there’s lots of good food and drink and plenty to do.

Enjoy FREE live music at The Green (next to Jay Country Store) in the Town of Jay.

FREE live from Rick Redington & The Luv (additional band TBD), tie-dyeing, alongside several food and craft vendors.

Are you a craft or food vendor and looking to participate? Drop Luke a line at to reserve a spot. Vendor spots are limited and will be treated on a first come first serve basis.

Same day as August West… is the 14th annual Jay Summer Fest. Jay Summer Fest is complete with a plethora of food and craft vendors, the annual town parade, the famous 50/50 cow plop fundraiser, more FREE live music, a baking contest sponsored by King Arthur Flour, and so much more.
