Annual Super Tag Sale Plus Fundraiser
3rd Annual Super Tag Sale Plus will be June 23, 24, 25 - Details coming soon
Due to the 2020 Covid Pandemic we were unable to have our 13th Annual Jay Summer Fest on August 8, 2020
We decided to have a Super Tag Sale that included a 50/50 Raffle, Mystery Bags & Gift Baskets.
Five days of our Super Tag Sale brought in $6000 for local organizations. We were overwhelmed with support of people and organizations who cleaned out their attics and basements to donate to our cause.
In 2021 we were still unable to organize what would have been our 14th Annual Jay Summer Fest.
We opted to put on our 2nd Annual Super Tag Sale Fundraiser for 5 days in June & July
which was a huge success thanks to all our volunteers working the event, everyone who donated to the event
and especially to all who came to our event.
We cannot thank you enough for your continued support and generosity to help us help others in Orleans County.
Tag Sale Items, Collectibles, $25 Lucky Draw, Super 50/50 Raffle, Mountainside Sculpture & Design Owl Donation and the Adirondack Chair donation from Ripley Point Chairs combined to help us reach our goal of $6000 and climbing.
A special shout out to Troy & Area Lions Club for the use of their large tent and Community National Bank, Rotary Club of Newport, VT and Jim Campbell Realty for their sponsorship as well as all the businesses and individuals who donated gift certificates and items for our $25 Lucky Draw ( Water Park, Ski Tickets & Golf Day tickets from Jay Peak Resort,

Jay Summer Fest, was normally the 2nd Saturday of August, has changed through the years.
Jay Summer Fest, was originally called Jay Day in the mid 1980's, when Jay Country Store owners Rich & Ronnie Vanderveer started the tradition. It was brought back to life in 2009 by Chris Beerworth with a Bake & Tag Sale for the Jay/Westfield Elementary School After School Program. It soon morphed into today's version of Jay Summer Fest always the same day as Jay Peak Resort's Augustwest Music Festival, held in the Jay Country Store field.
If someone says Jay Day, Augustwest or Jay Summer Fest they are usually talking about our event. In recent years it included 60 plus Vendors, 50/50 Cow Plop Raffle, Horseshoe Tournament at Jay Village Inn, Silent Auction, Tag Sale,
King Arthur Baking Contest, Parade, Music, Face Painting & Photo Garden, Kids Activities and more.
The Jay Focus Group pulled the winning Super Tag Sale 50/50 Raffle tickets Sept 1 our meeting at the Jay Village Inn. Thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket(s) we raised $800 for our 2022 Scholarship Fund. We want to thank everyone who purchased ticket(s) and our local businesses who donated prizes.
