Which of our seasons do you like the best?


we can help!

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.

The Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series at Dog Mountain FREE concert series returns this summer!

Every night, Dumont, the driving force behind The Blue Dahlia, would pop into Barbès, the Brooklyn bar famous for its intimacy and its boisterous global music. Recently returned from several years in France, Dumont was struggling with a new baby, her father’s serious illness, and nursing school. The music she heard at night inspired her, as did the people she met at the club. “I decided to get some songs down as a demo,” she recalls. Her fellow regulars joined in, and a band was born.
