Young Tradition Showcase Stage

For years young performers have taken the stage in early May to share their talents in singing, dancing and playing traditional music. It’s a great opportunity to perform, and to meet other young performers. It’s also a great way to get connected to mentors and teachers in the community, and has opened doors for many to other performance opportunities.    They post videos and biographies on the Young Tradition Vermont website for public viewing, and YT board members and past winners of the contest vote for up to 10 finalists, who are invited to take part in the showcase at Kids Day!
