To start things off with a bang, everyone is invited to the first annual Festival Community Picnic. The picnic will take place on Sunday, August 5, from 6 to 10 p.m., at the Lareau Farm Inn. <CLICK FOR MORE INFO>
Last Monday, August 6, was one of those rare occasions when it’s perfectly acceptable to fill up on appetizers, as restaurants and food vendors participating in the Vermont Arts Festival’s Taste of the Valley event served up small, hors d’oeuvres-like samples of signature dishes at Sugarbush’s Lincoln Peak.
What an amazing weekend for the opening of the Vermont Festival of the Arts! With classic, changeable August weather, the Festival of the Arts has begun.
