Do Good Fest returns bigger and better than ever


Vermont Business Magazine Do Good Fest, a benefit music concert hosted by National Life Group at its Montpellier campus, returns after a hiatus during the pandemic. The largest concert in central Vermont is expected to bring together nearly 10,000 people in the company’s natural amphitheater. This year, Do Good Fest features X Ambassadors as headliners as well as American authors, Forest Blakk and Moxie from Vermont.

A new highlight of the event is Beats for Good, a high school music competition. Kingdom All Stars, a group of teenage musicians from the North East Kingdom, won after nearly 6,000 votes were tallied online. They will play the main role in Moxie. The Laker Ladies, a trio from Colchester High School, will sing the song that got them hot on the heels and open Do Good Fest.

Other new features include a VIP lounge and a live streaming option viewable on DoGoodFest.com for those who cannot make it to the event. All proceeds will again benefit Branches of Hope, Central Vermont Medical Center’s cancer patient fund. Do Good Fest has raised over a quarter of a million dollars for this fund over the years, which was previously supported by bake sales. Online donations are progressing well. The amount raised from reserved tickets will be revealed before X Ambassadors takes the stage.

Do Good Fest will also host a nonprofit village featuring 25 local nonprofits, a beer tent, nearly 20 food vendors, and a kids’ zone.
