A longtime dream of hosting a live music events calendar that reflects the music community across the state is becoming real. Big Heavy World has been welcomed into a new statewide network of event calendars hosted by the Vermont Department of Tourism & Marketing, first created in 2015 as a collaboration of VDTM, The Vermont Chamber of Commerce, and the Everwondr network.

The calendar network combines event information that is entered into its database from all over the state. Concerts added to the Big Heavy World calendar at will get seen throughout the growing network, including the web sites of the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, NEKTA, Catamount Arts, Main Street Landing, Okemo Chamber of Commerce, Woodstock Chamber of Commerce, Newport Chamber of Commerce, Addison County VT, Higher Ground, and the City of Montpelier. The calendar can be searched by keyword, radius around where you are, or region of the state.

Steven Cook, Deputy Commissioner of Tourism, says, "The Vermont Department of Tourism & Marketing is extremely excited to work with organizations to promote unique events, performing arts and visual arts exhibits using the Everwondr network. We feel that this is a great way to inform our visitors of interesting events and make it easier for event organizers to promote their events to a wide network."

Vermont bands: Be sure to add your shows to the calendar!

Big Heavy World's participation in the network is made possible with support from the Vermont Dept. of Tourism & Marketing.
