Vernon Events

This is a listing of upcoming events in the area sponsored by our Vernon Volunteer Organizations as well as other Vernon events of general interest.

Details of many of the events can be found on our Making Vernon Special MeetUp Page. The ‘Learn more’ link will take you to the event listing.

Public events are slow to return as groups are still being very cautious. The Town of Vernon now has a town wide Calendar of Events so also check that for activity. Go to Vernon Calendar.
