Celebrate by kicking back, dancing, enjoying friends and family at the "Afterglow" Dance Party on Friday, December 21. Step into a sophisticated nightclub atmosphere in the warm yet elegant space of the Bennington Museum. With great music spun by DJ Johnny Love, the expansive dance floor beckons you and your friends to get up and celebrate.

From 8:00 to 11:00 p.m. (last year it was going until midnight) the cash bar will be offering holiday drinks, wine, beer and soft drinks.

Over twenty trees are set in themed vignettes that tell a story or represent the group that created the tree and setting.Following this year's theme "Around the World,' the vignettes range from powerful to whimsical and are a delight to explore. The exhibit is located in three of the museum's eleven galleries. Be with us when the "Best of the Fest" is announced in several categories.
