Although it may be a relatively small town, don’t let that fool you; the mountain getaway of Stowe, Vermont is home to some big sales. Every year in Stowe, along the long stretch of Mountain Road—seven miles long, to be exact—there are hundreds of sales to be found. Whether it be jewelry, sporting goods, clothing, and more, there is bound to be a shop on Mountain Road offering it. The 7 Miles of Sales event, which takes place around the Fourth of July weekend every year, is a celebration of the local businesses and high-quality merchandise for which Vermont is known.

A Sunny Atmosphere

Along Mountain Road’s seven miles, from which the event gets its name, there are nearly one hundred specialty shops that open their doors, their sidewalks, and their online stores to eager shoppers and bargain hunters. Shopping under the warm July sun, surrounded by a festive atmosphere, is truly a delightful Stowe experience to have. Some of the vendors that take part in the 7 Miles of Sales event include art galleries, artisan boutiques, and other stores selling specialized goods. Those who are looking to “shop until they drop” are encouraged to pick up local guides and pamphlets showcasing the event, as these hold special coupons that can be applied on top of the phenomenal sales. There are so many Stowe VT activities in the Summer for you to explore!

Festive Fourth of July

If this isn’t exciting enough, the fact that the 7 Miles of Sales takes place at the same time as the Fourth of July means that shoppers can also take advantage of the fun Stowe Fourth of July celebration. Fourth of July events in Stowe include the “Moscow Parade,” a charm-filled local event that is made up of thrifty but creative locally-made floats, the Old-Fashioned Village Festival, and the “World’s Shortest Race.” Of course, in true Fourth of July Fashion, there are also fireworks. This is one of the best Stowe VT activities in the Summer!
