Each week, Reverb will activate its Carbon Offset Program, which allows fans to offset their carbon footprint by making a small charitable donation. On August 20th, when Dirty Dozen Brass Band takes the stage, the Reverb Eco-village will descend on Killington to offer activities aimed at raising awareness of alternative and renewable energy sources. Environmental non-profit groups will help educate concertgoers about the steps they can take to reduce their footprint, and all-natural and organic food producers will sample their products. Killington Resort will present an interactive display to inform guests about how it integrates green practices into its snowmaking and customer service operations.

A beer garden, outdoor grill and outdoor lawn games will accompany the live music, so bring lawn blankets and chairs and enjoy the scenic views!

For music fans looking for a little outdoor adventure before the concert, The Basin Ski Shop on the Killington Road will behosting free mountain bike demos by Specialized on Saturday July 30 from 9 am - 5 pm. The demos are free, and the Basin provides free lift tickets from Killington.

The events are sponsored by Long Trail Brewing Company, Killington Resort, IZSTYLE, Casella Waste Systems Inc. and the Town of Killington.

 We love dogs, but please keep them at home for this event.
