Welcome to the Marlboro Morris Ale!

The 42nd Marlboro Morris Ale will be held at Marlboro College, in Marlboro, VT

Friday, May 26th through Monday, May 29th, 2017


Every Memorial Day weekend since 1976, morris dancers from around the United States, Canada and England have gatheredĀ Marlboro College in Marlboro, VT to celebrate at an invitational Whitsun-type Ale (a traditional springtime gathering of British folk dancers).

These teams, or ‘sides’ of dancers and musicians then travel throughout Brattleboro, VT on Saturday and Windham County on Sunday to perform their various styles of ritual dancing, including Cotswold, Border, Clog, Rapper, and Sword. Be sure to look for flying ribbons, ringing bells, flashing hankies, and crashing sticks as we welcome in the Spring!
