Come celebrate Vermont farm and forestry traditions through connections with food, agriculture, and community! This day-long festival features music, storytelling, hands-on activities for children, traditional craft demonstrations, educational exhibits on Vermont’s agricultural, environmental, and energy future.

There will be opportunities to meet craftspeople – rug hookers, woodworkers, weavers, spinners, cheesemakers, and gardeners – and try some traditional arts. There will be “forest to furniture” demonstrations of wood turning, carving, pole lathe, and more.

The festival will also include horse-drawn hay rides provided by Green Mountain Draft Horse Association and Green Mountain Miniature Horse and Donkey Association (for a $2/person fee).

Cost: $10 | Adult, $5 | Senior, $5 | Children & Students. Free to members and children 2 & under
