Garlic Fest 2018

Join garlic-lovers from throughout New England as they come to sample food and crafts from hundreds of different vendors, all made from -you guessed it – garlic and herbs!

Everything from garlic ice cream to garlic jelly, pickled garlic, roasted garlic, garlic braids and, of course, plain garlic bulbs of every variety will be available for sampling and purchase, along with planting and braiding and cooking demonstrations.

For aspiring gardeners, garlic growers, garlic-lovers or those simply looking for a fun way to spend a Vermont end-of-summer day, the event promises something for everyone.

For the kids there will be face painting, inflatable fun jumps and other great children’s activities. Take time to wander around the spacious lawns sampling garlic delicacies and enjoy the festivities. Relax at the Beer and Wine Garden under the tent listening to live music both days.

Something Else to Celebrate

 

Following the Vermont Legislature’s historic passage of a bill legalizing recreational cannabis use for adults, and Gov. Phil Scott signing the bill into law, Heady Vermont will host a celebration for members and the general public on July 1 – the day legalization goes into effect. Our celebration will take place at Willow Crossing Farm in Johnson. Willow Crossing Farm is an experimental and educational organic family farm, and the birthplace of the Prospect Rock Permaculture Project.

 

 

Point to Point Festival 2018

The Point to Point, powered by VSECU, is a cycling and running event that was created in 2002 to raise funds and awareness for the Vermont Foodbank’s mission to end the growing problem of hunger in Vermont. Help a neighbor in need and have fun doing it!

Every dollar that is raised through the Point to Point goes directly to the Vermont Foodbank.

17th Annual Point to Point – August 11, 2018.
Online registration closes August 8, 2018 at noon.

In addition to participating in the Point to Point, riders, runners, and family members are invited to join the fun at the P2P Festival. Event day will be packed with activities for all ages, including food trucks, live music, Family Fun Zone, and ample opportunities to meander the Ascutney Trails system.

Rides: 25, 50, and 100-mile road distances and 10 and 20-mile trail distances.

Be a pioneer by being one of the first to participate in the NEW Point to Point half marathon trail run.

Event Schedule

A Concert to Sleep Through Department

This is most definitely not for loners. It’s an 8 hour performance of “Sleep,” Max Richter’s eight-hour soundtrack engineered, with the help of scientific consultants, to provoke a relaxing night.

Tickets cost $250, including individual Beautyrest mattresses,  to be donated later to a charity for children who have trouble sleeping, as well as linens, sleep masks, swag bags, etc., all bearing the Beautyrest branding.  TAlk about the ultimate in product placement!
