For nearly 50 years, Catamount Arts has worked to make the arts a fundamental part of community life.
Since our humble beginnings as a traveling film presenter in 1975, Catamount Arts now offers foreign, independent, and classic films; exhibitions by local and regional artists; live music, dance, and theater performances; summer camps and arts education programming for children and adults; a regional box office for more than 40 organizations; a gathering space for community events; and much more!
We’re the proud producers of the KCP Presents Performing Arts Series, bringing world-class professional performances to Vermont’s rural Northeast Kingdom; First Night North, the only family-friendly, alcohol-free New Year’s Eve performing arts festival in Vermont; the EPIC Music Program, an afterschool program for ensemble instruction in strings (violin, viola, cello), modeled on the global El Sistema movement of social change through music education; and the Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series, which presents a broad array of music genres and cultural programming at Dog Mountain and in Downtown St. Johnsbury each summer since 2017!
Our team also works with local communities to support their local creative economies including outdoor movies, street festivals, gazebo shows, and hundreds of concerts on our mobile stages — over 45,000 attendees generating over $3 million of economic impact last year alone!

Our mission is to inspire appreciation of and participation in the Arts, promote the Arts throughout the region, and cultivate the Arts as an integral part of community life.
Our vision is to serve as the Community Arts Organization and Box Office for the region, acting as an essential force for the Arts and enhancing the cultural and economic climate of communities throughout Northeastern Vermont and Northwestern New Hampshire.
