Blue Sky VT Days

In-Person Events & Virtual Challenge

Throughout the year, we host in-person events around the state to encourage you to do an activity you love or try something new. We also support local organizations that help make outdoor activities and wellness more accessible for Vermonters. If you can't join us in person, you can always participate virtually. Take us along for your outdoor adventures by sharing photos with us on social media or via email. Find out more about upcoming in-person events, the virtual challenge and our community partners below.
