The Village Building Convergence is an annual collaboration and cross pollination of neighbors, groups and civic partnerships to transform our town through village life patterns and educational placemaking projects. This culminates in a 10-day fall celebration.

During the day, you will have the opportunity to get involved with creative community designed placemaking projects happening all over the town. There will be building, gardening, art, and many other fun things to do and great people doing them with you!

During the night, there will be educational and inspirational presentations, food, music, and a whole lot of celebration.

Many of you may have heard of VBC from our northern allies in Portland who have been doing this successfully for 14 years.  Now it's our turn to bring this awesome event home.

What's a Placemaking Festival?  Placemaking is the act of locals coming together  to shape their common spaces in a way that promotes beauty and community.  Projects may take the shape of benches on corners, street painting projects, sharing kiosks, natural building projects and a multitude of other ways to inspire neighbors to gather in public spaces.

The VBC website has much more information.
