AllTogetherNow! About our non-profit organization

AllTogetherNow!

Our non- Profit was incorporated as a 501© 3 arts organization in 1986 to "promote and present live performance art to young audiences in Central Vermont."  It was named Kids'Fest. In 2018 We updated our mission statement and changed our name to AllTogetherNow!  

This organization has always been on the leading edge of creating opportunities for families of Central Vermont to experience the wonders of art. In it’s early days the organization brought professional artists into the schools and community to enrich youths’ art opportunities. The Onion River Arts Council was formed and for decades brought professional artists to the community and schools. The board then decided to organize and family New Year's Celebration To Montpelier and after a year of organizing a Last Night community arts celebration, began to organize First Night Montpelier. First Night was passed on to ORAC to in 1997 and we moved on to create and support Montpelier's community seasonal celebrations which include: the annual All Species Day Parade and Spring Pageant established in Montpelier in 1989; The Enchanted Forest, in collaboration with Friends of Montpelier Parks established in 1997 and Ice on Fire in collaboration with Montpelier Parks and Tarin Chaplin. We have always been organized by a small group of dedicated volunteer board members and as projects grew and expanded they were passed on to ORAC with its full time staff and office. ORAC is gone, First Night Montpelier, after being passed along to Montpelier Alive is no longer, but the Seasonal Celebrations with their core of community volunteers and artists continue to be celebrated yearly.  In 2018 We updated our mission statement and changed our name to AllTogetherNow! because this is wh we are at our heart.

Our new mission statement:

AllTogetherNow! awakens and strengthens community through celebration, education, the arts and our relationships to oneanother and the natural world.
