Champlain Valley Exposition A.C.R.E.S.

Essex Junction, Vermont

This partial revision of the original master plan developed by BullockSmith focuses on a portion of the events zone with the intent to fulfill the agriculture-based mission of the Champlain Valley Exposition. The Agricultural Community Research and Environmental Science (ACRES) project includes an 18,000 SF exhibit/education building, a 1,000 seat open-sided arena, an 88 stall barn, a 7,500 SF open pavilion, a new entry gate, and shade trees. These phased improvements will enhance the facility’s year-round use. This unique component of the Champlain Valley Exposition will offer an hands on learning experience as it presents the story of Vermont’s farming and agricultural past, present and future.
