Cool Running in the Valley

The Southern Vermont Deerfield Valley Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce they will once again be producing a valley-wide community arts installation – Cool Running in the Valley.  Artists with a passion for our beautiful region of Vermont, are challenged to create a signature work of art using 6 foot, locally handcrafted, wooden toboggans provided by the Chamber. There is a stipend for artist's materials and time, and artists must submit a proposal by April 1st to the Chamber. Proposals should include a sketch of your toboggan idea as well as a photo of some previous art.

Support The Arts In Southern Vermont’s Deerfield Valley!

The Southern Vermont Deerfield Valley Chamber of Commerce is asking local business and homeowners to help support this annual Community Arts Project with artist sponsorships.   Sponsorship are $500 per toboggan and may be split up between up to three separate groups.  Sponsors will be named in promotional materials including social, digital & print marketing of the Arts Project & Installation.  Each toboggan will feature a bronze plaque naming the artist & sponsor(s) of the toboggan.  Sponsors will have the opportunity of buying back their sponsored toboggan.  If a toboggan is not bought back by a Sponsor it will go to the Apres Ski Toboggan Auction & Party on November 26, 2016 at Mount Snow Resort immediately following the Fireworks & Torch light parade.

Toboggans will be unveiled at Hayford Field in Wilmington during the 4th of July Fireworks festivities on July 2, 2016.  The toboggans will be displayed as a group in Wilmington during July & August, and West Dover during September & October.

Artists & persons interested in sponsoring a toboggan, either as an individual or as a business should contact the Southern Vermont Deerfield Valley Chamber of Commerce at 802-464-8092 or email


portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit Deerfield Valley Community Cares Heating Assistance, The Deerfield Valley Food Pantry & Make-A-Wish Vermont.
