The Northeast Kingdom Chamber is the tri-county's largest and only fully staffed chamber, handling travel promotion, community/economic development, legislative/governmental relations, business networking and promotion of regional projects.

The chamber, based out of St. Johnsbury with about 300 members, is conveniently located at the Green Mountain Mall, across from JCPenney.

We believe the best businesses in the Northeast Kingdom are Northeast Kingdom Chamber members.

Date: Sunday, November 28, 2021
Time: 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Welcome back to our Main Stage for this indoor performance! The Domestic Resurrection Obligation Show features paper mache specialists and domestic resurrectionists hard at work, assisting naked humanity in its fight against the established one-directional culture. Enter the routine disasters and massacres of the human race. Garbage, along with the tricks and propositions of the domestic resurrectionists, attempt to enable humanity to redirect its ill-fated course. The Bread & Puppet Press Store and Cheap Art Emporium will be open after the performances. Bread & Puppet Theater is an internationally celebrated company that champions a visually rich, street-theater brand of performance art filled with music, dance and slapstick. Its shows are political and spectacular, with huge puppets made of paper mache and cardboard. Founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City's Lower East Side, the theater has been based in the North East Kingdom of Vermont since the early 1970s. Tickets are $15.
