The Civic Standard is a nonprofit organization headquartered on Main Street in Hardwick, Vermont.

We are a grand social experiment rooted in a small town, an effort in collaborative fun-making and culture-building, an art project, a church of theater, a free supper club, and a public living room for cozy conversations.

We are listening to our town, and always trying to reflect it back on itself.​


We are rehearsing "CHANGE YOUR LIFE: Hardwick's own Live Game Show", which will premiere at the Hardwick Town House May 9, 10, and 11th. Get your tickets HERE, or stop by the Civic any weekday afternoon to purchase them in person.

We have free supper here at the Civic every Wednesday at 5:30pm.
There are lots of ongoing events-- trivia, mending, old-time music gatherings, karaoke, and honky-tonk dances-- which you can read about on our UPCOMING page.

You can find us here at 42 S. Main St during our weekly open hours:
Monday- Friday 12-5
