Marlboro Morris Ale Returns to Potash Hill
May 5, 2023
Every Memorial Day weekend since 1976, Morris dancers from around the United States, Canada, and England have gathered at Potash Hill to celebrate at an invitational Whitsun-type Ale, a traditional springtime gathering of British folk dancers. We are delighted to host this annual tradition — it wouldn’t be spring in Marlboro without it!
The 48th Annual Marlboro Morris Ale performances take place on Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28, 2023. They begin on Potash Hill on Saturday at 9:45 am. The 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 the performers welcome in the spring!
