We are currently seeking vendors for the 2015 Vermont Wine & Harvest Festival. We are pleased to share that the Vermont Wine & Harvest Festival has been designated as one of North America’s Top 100 events by the American Bus Association, the only Vermont event to have made the list! This year’s festival takes place in late September on the 18-20.
The Wine & Harvest Festival celebrates the products, food, art, crafters and wineries of Vermont. The 8th Annual Vermont Wine & Harvest Festival will be another fantastic opportunity for artisans from across Vermont to come together to showcase their crafts. Vintners, painters, publishers, cheese makers, weavers, potters, jewelers, chefs, photographers, farmers, chocolatiers, demonstrations — all Vermont businesses are welcome to participate in this showcase for Vermont in the southern Green Mountains.
The festival was created to be a destination event and is promoted and packaged to fall travelers, day trippers, and Vermonters. Southern Vermont’s Deerfield Valley is a major tourist destination in the summer and fall. The 2015 festival will open with the “Welcome to Vermont” celebration in historic downtown Wilmington featuring the 7th Annual Vermont Soup Contest and live entertainment. This event has been very well received and attended.
Complimentary events will once again take place throughout Southern Vermont’s Deerfield Valley, including a number of Vermont wine pairing dinners, Soup contest and stroll, Vermont wine tasting seminar and cheese sampling, and a Taste of Vermont Pancake Breakfast.
