January arts, entertainment events start 2022
Good year! At this point, we don’t know if 2022 will be better for Vermont’s arts and entertainment scene than 2021, which was better than 2020 but still not thriving like before the COVID-19 pandemic.
But we saw in 2021 that things can happen even during a pandemic, but with a number of restrictions. Remember while reading this list of things to do in Vermont in January that most sites require proof of COVID-19 vaccination and / or wearing protective masks. Some cities have also passed regulations requiring masks to be worn in indoor public spaces, so keep that in mind when making plans as well.
Otherwise, here are some ideas to start the New Year off right.
