2016 was the first year. Flat Street in downtown Brattleboro was transformed into a public venue with a Tiny House Village in parking lot, talks and panels were under the big tent occupying a vacant lot, a pop-up makerspace filled a vacant storefront, and the closed street was filled with exhibitors and thousands of revelers. The choice of location was a big part of this Creative Placemaking initiative, intending to give focus to downtown restaurants, shops, and galleries. Success!
