Welcome to the Marlboro Morris Ale!

The 43rd Marlboro Morris Ale will be held at Marlboro College, in Marlboro, VT

Friday, May 25th through Monday, May 28th, 2018

 

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!
