Are you planning a summer vacation? Or maybe a stay-cation? Here are three of our favorite events of the summer! Save the date, buy the tickets, and enjoy.
Every summer there are certain events that you need to attend. These are the parties, get-togethers, concerts, or festivals that are the essence of summer in Vermont's culinary community. Beer, cheese, local food...Vermont does them well and exceeds expectations.
July 19th & 20th - Vermont Brewers Festival, Burlington
A festival celebrating craft beers and the brewers who brew them. This is your chance to try new styles, and beers brewed only for the festival. The third weekend in July at Burlington's Waterfront Park with scenic views of Lake Champlain framed by the Adirondack Mountain Range is not to be missed.
August 4th - Vermont Fresh Network's 23rd Annual Forum Dinner, Shelburne
For one special evening in August, farmers and chefs from across Vermont come together to prepare a sensational meal on the shores of Lake Champlain. Beginning with a cocktail and appetizer hour with local producers, the event transitions to a grazing dinner with local restaurants and chefs, ending with an ice cream social.
August 11th - Vermont Cheesemakers Festival, Shelburne
Vermont is a world-class cheese state with the highest number of cheesemakers per capita. You are invited to share their passion for making exceptional cheeses, taste great local foods, wines, craft beers and spirits, and meet the artisans who make them.
