The Ramble was created in 2004 with the simple concept that if we said “anything goes” and made a map, the Old North End would shine in all of its creativity, energy, and diversity. We made a map, threw a block party, had a bike parade… and the rest of the day was fun-filled with art, music, performance, human chess, and a plethora of other surprises. It was a blast. So we did it again. The Ramble is truly a community-driven event. There are so many people that make it happen with their energy, enthusiasm and inspiration that it would be impossible to list them all here!
However, there is a group of folks who have agreed to be on a board, and who have been dedicated to contributing to the enjoyment of the Ramble year after year. They are an eclectic mix of artists, yogis, designers, community activists, teachers, musicians, performers, writers, and the owners of some of the most interesting businesses in Burlington, including a creperie (and companion muffinerie), an enchanted junk shop, and a wildly successful local cafe:
