Get Weird at Grand Point North

And if you’re looking to immerse yourself in great local art, Grand Point North will once again host Grand Point Weird.

Grand Point Weird is an art installation located right on the festival grounds. It will be curated by Charlotte Potter, the glass-studio manager and program director of the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, VA, and also Grace Potter’s sister.

This year’s installation will feature collaboration projects created by Estaban del Valle, a Brooklyn-based painter, and students of the Vermont Governor’s Institute on the Arts. For this installation, students created masks and developed performances inspired by the Abenaki creation story of Lake Champlain that will augment the live painting by Estaban del Valle.

Campout and Enjoy the Show

To get the full music festival experience, Grand North Point offers campgrounds at Burlington’s North Beach Campground. Located less than two miles away from the festival itself, these campgrounds are the perfect place to settle down for the weekend.

The campgrounds come with restrooms, showers and 69 tent sites. Plus, if you want to make the grounds feel a little more like home, there are also 29 full hook-ups and 39 electric and water hook-ups.
