East Dorset, Vermont — The Manchester Designer Outlets (MDO) will again support this year’s Vermont Summer Festival by presenting the $10,000 Open Welcome Stake each Thursday throughout the six-week circuit, running from July 4 through August 13, 2017, at Harold Beebe Farm in East Dorset, VT.
Returning as a sponsor for the 12th consecutive year, MDO is located minutes from the Vermont Summer Festival showgrounds and is comprised of designer label fashions for both men and women. MDO retail brands featured as title sponsors of the weekly $10,000 Open Welcome Stake classes at this year’s Vermont Summer Festival include Vineyard Vines, NYDJ, New Balance, Brooks Brothers, and G.H. Bass & Co. Winners of each Welcome Stake will be presented with their share of the $10,000 purse, as well as a $1,000 gift card from that week's sponsoring brand.
“Having the Manchester Designer Outlets so close to the Vermont Summer Festival is an exciting added benefit for our riders, and we are very proud to also have them as official supporters of the show itself,” said Ruth Lacey, Marketing Director of the Vermont Summer Festival. “The very generous prizes for weekly Welcome Stake winners not only add to the exhibitor experience, but also help encourage riders to explore all that the Manchester area has to offer by way of shopping and entertainment.”
In addition to the latest fashion trends with savings of up to 70 percent, MDO also offers unbeatable deals on luxury home furnishings, gifts and stylish accessories. The combination of culture and style, while showcasing the best of Manchester, makes for an enjoyable and relaxing shopping experience.
